Lucas Kanade Tracker

I am working on a tracking algorithm based on Lucas-Kanade Method using Optical Flow. The Lucas–Kanade method is a widely used differential method for optical flow estimation developed by Bruce D. Lucas and Takeo Kanade. It assumes that the flow … Continue reading

Face Tracking with CAMShift using OpenCV/SimpleCV

CAMShift stands for Continuously Adaptive Mean Shift. It is the basis for the face-tracking algorithm in OpenCV. It combines the basic Mean Shift algorithm with an adaptive region-sizing step. The kernel is a simple step function applied to a skin-probability … Continue reading
