Project: The Reading People Tracker
Researchers: Siebel N.The Reading People Tracker is a software for tracking people in camera images for visual surveillance purposes. It originates from research work on people tracking for automatic visual surveillance systems for crime detection and prevention. It was built within the context of two PhD theses (by AM Baumberg and NT Siebel) and contains state-of-the art image processing algorithms. It is easily maintainable and well documented. Therefore it can (and has already been) easily be adapted to new requirements and different projects. The Reading People Tracker contains the necessary functionality to read video sequences from hard disk or a video camera (IEEE1394/DV), to manipulate the images with image filters and to analyse them with a number of detection and tracking modules. More information, source code and documentation can be found on The Reading People Tracker's home page.
