Paper Abstract

A real-time system has been developed for automatic target detection and tracking in infrared image sequence. The system comprises the algorithm software and a small processor using for image processing. The algorithm includes these techniques: space filtering; background cancelling technique; target detection; acquisition and precise tracking. The leading features of the system are: (1) High speed in seeking targets. (2) High detection probability. (3) Sub-pixel level of tracking precision. (4) The capability of working reliably and effectively in complicated background. In this paper, the theory and architecture of the system are proposed and the testing results in various situations are shown.
