Paper Abstract

An automatic moving object tracking system for unmanned visual surveillance is designed and implemented. To detect movement of an object, differential operation in the time domain is performed followed by binary morphological processing to extract the moving object of interest. The extreme and focusing points of detected object are computed to predict the object's moving direction and amount, and camera driving is performed using pan/tilt drives and electrically controlled zooming mechanisms for motion tracking. Since the amount of data to be processed is enormous and these operations require real time processing, the proposed scheme is implemented with extensive use of high density Programmable Logic Device (PLD) together with off-the-shelf peripheral devices.
