Title (EN) VIDEO TRACKING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE SUIVI VIDÉO
Abstract:
(EN) An object tracking apparatus is provided comprising a moveable unit (106); a first image acquisition device (102) mounted on the moveable unit; a second image acquisition device (104) mounted on the moveable unit and pointing in substantially the same direction as the first image acquisition device; and a control device (108). The control device is configured to determine, from image data received from the first image acquisition device, positional information of an object represented in the image data to be tracked; and output a control signal to the moveable unit to control its movement and cause the second image acquisition device to track the object in accordance with the determined positional information.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de suivi d'objet comprenant une unité mobile (106) ; un premier dispositif d'acquisition d'images (102) monté sur l'unité mobile ; un second dispositif d'acquisition d'images (104) monté sur l'unité mobile et tourné sensiblement vers la même direction que le premier dispositif d'acquisition d'images ; et un dispositif de commande (108). Le dispositif de commande est configuré pour déterminer, à partir de données d'image reçues en provenance du premier dispositif d'acquisition d'images, des informations de position d'un objet représenté dans les données d'image devant être suivi ; et délivrer un signal de commande à l'unité mobile pour commander son mouvement et à amener le second dispositif d'acquisition d'images à suivre l'objet en fonction des informations de position déterminée.
