Object Detection & Tracking Made Easy

by Brandon Gilles

Hello World!

Object tracking is incredibly useful when combined with object detection particularly when the objects of interest are in motion. Using computer vision we can detect and track only the subjects or classes of objects we want, which helps us make sense of the world we’re seeing.

With that in mind, today we’re going to show how simple/easy it is to get object tracking (with unique identifier per object) working in parallel with object detection on megaAI. The demo video is embedded below:

It’s as simple as indicating that you want the object tracking stream from the command line with the -s parameter. For example:

python3 -s metaout previewout object_tracker -dd

And that’s it, now you have unique IDs and tracking for any object that megaAI detects.

  • Need a people counter? Easy.
  • Want to count [potatoes / tshirts / hardware] in a production line? Done.
  • Want to know the 3D trajectory of a car to know if it's going to run you over?

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more exciting features and use-case examples!
