Paper Abstract

In different areas of applications such as education, entertainment, medical surgery, or space shuttle launching, distributed visual tracking systems are of increasing importance. In this paper we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of OmniTrack, a distributed omni-directional visual tracking system, developed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with an Adaptive Middleware Architecture as the core of the system. With respect to both operating systems and network connections, adaptation is of fundamental importance to the tracking system, since it runs in an environment with large performance variations and without support of Quality of Service guarantees.
