This paper introduces a fast-moving target tracking system based on CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxygen Semiconductor) image sensor. A pipeline parallel architecture of region segmentation and first order moment algorithms on FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) platform enables driving the high frame rate CMOS image sensor and processing real-time images at the same time, extracting coordinates of the bright target spots in the high-rate consecutive image frames. In the end of this paper, an experiment proved that this system performs well in tracking fast-moving target in satisfying demand of speed and accuracy.
