Abstract
Video tracking is a technique that is used to detect and track objects based on some
typical features of the objects, and monitor their activities by image sequences taken by
video cameras. Video tracking can be used in many areas especially in security-related
areas such as airports, embassies, and battlefields. Mach research has been done with
various hardware environments; most based on fixed position still cameras. In this report,
we proposed a hardware platform for a video tracking system based on Pan-Tilt-Zoom
(PTZ) cameras. The goal of this work is to realize a prototype of a video surveillance
system, which can provide high-end video tracking functions based on a mobile server
platform. The system consists of three PTZ cameras, frame grabber, Pentium 4 PC, and
