Enabling object tracking through scenes with large light intensity changes

Technology Overview

Visual surveillance of dynamic scenes is critically important for a broad range of applications. Architecture for real-time extraction of of maximally stable extended extremal regions (X-MSERs) has been developed. The system is comprised of a communication interface and processing circuitry configured in hardware to receive data streams of an intensity image and a depth image in real-time. The system determines X-MSER ellipses parameters based upon the strong extremal regions and X-MSER criteria.
