Motion Tracking from stationary observer
July 23, 2008
I have an issue at my house right now...Young hoodlums of unknown origin have been sneaking onto my property and stealing things off my deck, and animals have been getting into my garbage.
I want to build a robot that when motion is detected with a passive ir sensor, a webcam will activate and start recording, however I want the sentry to track the movement with some precision, since the target (hoodlum or rodent) will be of different sizes.
So my question is, do I use an PIR sensor array to track movement? How should I go about doing this? Does anyone know any good references on motion tracking?
sorry for all my questions I'm kinda new at this.
Thanks in advance
