Abstract
An infrared target tracking system has been introduced in details for unmanned monitor application and its corresponding method for extracting and tracking moving targets from real-time infrared video has also been described. To ensure its real-time implementation on the tracking system, mature motion estimation techniques such as the time-domain statistics method and the DT method are adopted in the tracking method which includes three stages: target extracting, target classification and target tracking. A two-strategy classification method is adopted to improve classification accuracy. The tracking process involves correlation matching between a template and the current motion regions. The motion region with the best correlation is tracked and is used to update the template for subsequent tracking. The infrared target tracking system is based on a high-speed DSP chip with an internet interface, which may transmit the doubtful targets information to monitor center in time. To illustrate the effectivity of the infrared target tracking system, experimental results has been given in the end of this paper.
