Abstract
This paper presents the algorithms for tracking a moving object through video data using template matching. As the object translates and rotates, the template is adaptively updated so that the object is never lost while in frame. The algorithms were developed in MATLAB and applied to a video of a quadcopter in flight in both visible and infrared imagery. The normalized cross-correlation algorithm is the core of the research, providing an invariant of scale method to perform the template match. Then a bounding box is applied to the matched area and center of mass centroiding allow the object to be tracked frame-to-frame.
