Description/Abstract

The research reported here addresses the problem of tracking independently moving objects from a moving observer in real time, using corners as object tokens (Harris and Stephens, 1988). A novel algorithm is developed to solve the local correspondence/tracking problem. This algorithm relaxes the restrictive static-world assumption traditionally made, and is therefore capable of tracking independently moving objects. A parallel (Transputer) architecture is described on which to implement the algorithm. Implementation of the algorithm using T800 transputers has shown that near-linear speedups are achievable, and that real time operation is possible (half-video rate has been achieved using 30 processing elements).
