Paper Abstract

The high speed attitude maneuver of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) always causes large motion between adjacent frames of the video stream produced from the camera fixed on the UAV body, which will severely disrupt the performance of image object tracking process. To solve this problem, this paper proposes a method that using a gyroscope fixed on the camera to measure the angular velocity of camera, and then the object position’s substantial change in the video stream is predicted. We accomplished the object tracking based on template matching. Experimental result shows that the object tracking algorithm’s performance is improved in its efficiency and robustness with embedded gyroscope information.
