Object tracking with dlib

This tutorial will teach you how to perform object tracking using dlib and Python. After reading today’s blog post you will be able to track objects in real-time video with dlib. A couple months ago we discussed centroid tracking, a simple, yet effective method to (1) assign unique IDs to each object in an image […]

OpenCV People Counter

In this tutorial you will learn how to build a “people counter” with OpenCV and Python. Using OpenCV, we’ll count the number of people who are heading “in” or “out” of a department store in real-time. Building a person counter with OpenCV has been one of the most-requested topics here on the PyImageSearch and I’ve […]

OpenCV Object Tracking

In last week’s blog post we got our feet wet by implementing a simple object tracking algorithm called “centroid tracking”. Today, we are going to take the next step and look at eight separate object tracking algorithms built right into OpenCV! You see, while our centroid tracker worked well, it required us to run an […]
