Tracking and Surveillance

using COLOUR

 

Abstract

A technique is introduced to track human movement. The proposed method uses the color of humanís clothing to track their movement.

Human clothing can uniquely determine the identity of the person. The surface area available for detection is also larger than skin region. Therefore the chances of detecting rotational, deformed and occluded target also increase.

The color of the clothing can be determined with initial help from the skin color. The system learns the clothing color by monitoring the colors near the skin color over a few frames. After which skin color can be discard and tracking can be based mainly on clothing color.

The method is robust with regard to occlusion, non-stationary background, and random human movement.
