Chasing Insects: A Survey of Tracking Algorithms
The trajectories described by insects of different species in confined regions have been studied in depth. The main limitation found is the effective area covered while the insect is been tracked. Our work describes different image processing algorithms designed to capture the trajectory of an insect in a sequence of frames, and it focuses on the ones that don't depend on keeping fixed the position of the camera. Finally we propose a method for tracking insects in unconfined regions using a combination of some of the algorithms presented and a mobile camera system.
