Title

Real time object tracking using BMA

Abstract/Description

This paper describes real time object tracking using block matching algorithm (BMA). Emphasis is made on the development of techniques for tracking a user-selected object through digital image sequences in multimedia systems. The ability to track objects in sequences is useful in situations where the motion of objects is important. It is also useful when a moving object is difficult to see and needs to be highlighted. A tracking tool is also of benefit to the developers of a multimedia system to automatically 'mark up' a moving object so a user of the system can select it and manipulate it.
