Web-Based Object Tracking Using Collaborated Camera Network

Authors: Abul K. M. Azad, Mohammed Misbahuddin

The paper presents a web based vision system using a networked IP camera for tracking objects of interest. Three critical issues are addressed in this paper. First is the detection of moving objects in the foreground; second is the control of pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) IP cameras based on object location; and third is the collaboration of multiple cameras over the network to track objects of interests independently. The developed system utilized a network of PTZ cameras along with a number of software tools for this implementation. The system was able to track a single and multiple objects successfully. The difficulties in the detection of moving objects are also analyzed while multiple cameras are collaborating over a network utilizing PTZ cameras.
