Session Type: 
Trevor Clarke, Opticks

Vehicle detection and tracking is a common use for manned and unmanned airborne video systems particularly the new class of wide area persistent surveillance systems. This presentation discusses a technique for near real-time vehicle detection and tracking using open source tools such as Opticks and OpenCV. A combination of existing techniques was adapted for use with high spatial resolution and low temporal resolution data.
