Paper Abstract

In this paper an approach to analyze the motion of many particles moving at random is described. It is very' hard to track each particle manually, especially' when. a great many sequential pictures are analyzed. So it is necessary to be aided by a computer in processing and tracking moving objects. For this purpose, an automatic algorithm. for tracking moving particles from a sequence of digital pictures produced by. a TV camera or a scanner is developed. As an example, the two-dimensional motion, analysis of moving granules in a pancreatic cell is considered.
