Researcher and Phd student Zdenek Kalal has developed a new visual object tracking algorithm called Predator that is capable of learning and improving its accuracy as it tracks a target. The project has already won the “Technology Everywhere” award and can track almost anything a camera sees once it is selected.
The possibilities for such an accurate tracking system are endless and you can see a glimpse of what is possible in the series of 12 videos Zdenek Kalal has compiled whilst working on the project at the University of Surrey. Watch one of the videos of the new Predator Tracking Algorithm after the jump, to see it in action and let Kalal explain his project in a little more detail.
You can view the series of 12 videos over on YouTube. and the code for the project is freely available at the Surrey University website.
