This paper presents a vision method for a multi-rotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to track a moving object using combined algorithm of Camshift and Kalman predictor. Because of the real-time performance demanded by the control system, vision algorithm should calculate navigation data quickly. Camshift is a tracking algorithm based on histogram matching… CONTINUE READING
