Object detection is a well-known computer technology connected with computer vision and image processing that focuses on detecting objects or its instances of a certain class (such as color) in digital images and videos. There are various applications of object detection that have been well researched including face detection, character recognition, and vehicle calculator. Object detection can be used for various purposes including retrieval and surveillance. In this study, various basic concepts used in object detection while making use of Open CV library of python , improving the efficiency and accuracy of object detection are presented.
The aim of this project is to present a method for object detection and tracking based on its color. By using this method, one can easily detect and track any object which may be a ball or book or even an enemy aircraft’s missiles.
