Title: RFID BASED ZOOM LENS TRACKING OF OBJECTS OF INTEREST
Abstract:
Video tracking systems and methods is performed allows for tracking of one or more objects in video even if the objects are occluded or otherwise unavailable for optical tracking methods. In one such method, video of a scene is captured with a camera-equipped device. A selected object in the captured video is optically tracked to determine an optically-tracked location within the captured video. A position and orientation of the camera is determined. The device wirelessly receives coordinates that indicate the position of the selected object. Based on the position and orientation of the camera, the received coordinates are mapped to a mapped location in the captured video, which may be represented by pixel coordinates. In response to a determination that the selected object is obscured in the captured video, the mapped location is used to track the selected object.
