Project Title: Interactive Object Tracking

Authors: David Martin

Abstract: In this project, a camera-based object tracking system will be demonstrated along with virtual reality effects. Our goal is to replace a real world target with a pre-stored image. To make the replacement appear realistic, several image enhancements, such as color blending, image scaling, shadow insertion and additive noise, should be applied to the pre-stored image before superimposing it on the live video feed. In contrast with simple static image replacement, the object will be dynamically adjusted to mimic realistic shadows and rotations, and then displayed on the LCD screen. The expectation of the project is to provide both entertainment and education platform for kids and the elderly in an interactive and animated fashion, such as story telling and rehabilitation in video games.
