Determination of Neighbor Node in Consideration of the Imaging Range of Cameras in Automatic Human Tracking System

Authors: Takao Kawamura, Kazunori Sugahara, Kozo Tanigawa, Tappei Yotsumoto, Kenichi Takahashi


A automatic human tracking system using mobile agent technology is realized because a mobile agent moves in accordance with a migration of a target person. In this paper, we propose a method for determining the neighbor node in consideration of the imaging range of cameras.

Keywords: Mobile Agent, human tracking, Pan/Tilt/Zoom, neighbor relation
