I am working on a cell tracking problem,wherein multiple cells have to be tracked over a number of video frames (black and white).We have used bipartite matching to solve the problem,using only the cell centres.The area or contour of the cells cannot be used since the images are too noisy;filtering results in loss of such information.Now in order to test the efficiency of our method we need to compare it against some other well established tracking algorithms.Can anyone suggest some algorithm of this sort,which can be applied to black and white images and only uses the position information (I have come across a number of algorithms which use colour/contour/area on the net)???

Tracking algorithm
Hi, I have a simple tracking algorithm which tracks a scalar: scalar_estimate = h*x error = actual_scalar - scalar_estimate h = h + 0.01*error It works fine for slowly varying signals, but as soon as the signal has many abrupt changes, then the tracking algorithm performs worse because it can't keep up with the rapid changes. So I am wondering what type of algorithm would be suitable for tracking rapidly changing signals?

Tracking algorithms
Hello Friends, We are developing a navigation module with a DSP ,GPS ,Gyro,Digital Compass and Accelerometer. This will be used in drones to facilitate a return home g=function when the drones loose wifi contact. I am using an Analog Devices Blackfin chip.

phase tracking algorithm
I'm trying to implement a BPSK demodulator in Matlab. Everything works fine as expected if my modulator & demodulator are at the exact same frequency. However if my modulator is off slightly, the phase rotates as expected. Does anybody have any papers or references for tracking this phase rotation, such that frequency offset doesn't kill my demodulator? Thanks, >I'm trying to implement a BPSK demodulator in Matlab.

tracking adaptive algorithm
Hi everyone, I'm working on my phd thesis in a field related with the active noise control and i'm looking for an algorithm with good tracking capability, to work with a time-varying input signal (non stastionary). I have made several test with FXLMS, N-FXLMS, Leaky-FXLMS without much succes, I'm going in wrong direction with this algorithms? Variable-step-size-LMS could improve that tracking capability? Any advice is welcomed. Thx. On Apr 10, 5:15 pm, "sopapo" <sop...@sopapo.com> wrote: > Hi everyone, > > I'm working on my phd thesis in a fi...

IMM tracking algorithms
Dear all, I am involved in a mobile robotic project, where we need to track moving obstacles in a populated dynamic environment. I am considering of using something like an Interactive Multiple Model (IMM) tracking algorithm for this application. Does anybody have any Matlab source code of this algorithm, wich is used in a simple example? Such a demo-code could provide me with a first picture of the algorithm's fuctionality. Thank you for your time, Polychronis ...

Algorithm for Hand Tracking
Hello, I am trying to track one of the two hands (using matlab) when both the hands are together in the same frame. (The frames are captured using a stereo vision camera which gives the depth information).I am looking for algorithms to implement this.Kindly suggest any books or papers.

LTE Cell Search Algorithms
Hi, I was wondering if anybody could point me towards some decent cell search algorithms for LTE (timing and frequency synchronization). Any type of information would be welcome (links to articles, blogs, books etc). The frequency band included in the cell search would be large (for example 20MHz). Obviously, a sequential search, correlating the ZC sequences by increment of 15kHz is too expensive. So far, the most useful algorithm I found is to use CP correlation for coarse time synchronization and the primary and secondary channels for frequency synchronization and fine time synch...

delete cells in cell array with certain cell size
Hi there, how can I delete cells (arrays of different length) with a size==1 in a cell array? example for an cell array C. Cells 3 and 6 have a size of 1x2 and have to be deleted: >>C(1:6) ans = [13x2 single] [14x2 single] [1x2 single] [9x2 single] [11x2 single] [1x2 single] I could manage it for empty cells using cellfun % Empty cells in cell arrray will be deleted.

Cell within Cell ?
Hi all. let me describe my problem and what methods I have used so far. suppose A = cat(3, cell(3,3) ,cell(3,3) ); B = [1;0]; C = [1;1]; After going through some looping, B and C will be stored in A. However, when I click on A or type A in the command window, it DOES NOT show A(:,:,1) = [] [] [1;0] [] [] [] [] [] [] A(:,:,2) = [] [] [] [] [] [1;1] [] [] [] INSTEAD, it SHOWS A(:,:,1)= [] [] [2x1 double] [] [] [] [] [] [] A(:,:,2)= [] [] [] [] [] [2x1 double] [] [] [] I need to use celldisp(A) in order to view those data, but as the number of data increases, i got one of list of d...

dealing with cell of cells
My data files are tab-delimited ascii files that contain one header line (strings that may contain white characters other than \t) and multiple lines of %f. I found it hard to make use of a standard function (like textread, textscan,...) that would work invariably on different white characters in the header line. One result I get by calling textread on such a file is a array of <number_of_columns> cells, each containing <number_of_rows> cells each containing one %f value. The standard cell2mat function won't work on cell of cells. So, how do I translate such an "array of c...

image processing cells segmentation count cells amount cells
Hi,this is my image http://drop.io/fq1hhph I need to count all the cells,I ve tried the watershed transform to segment the cells but I haven't a good result.Do you know one method to segment all the cells and to count them or only to count,because i need the number of the total cells. thank you so much!!! You didn't get much help the last time you asked either. That's because no one knows what a cell is in that photo. It's not easy so you can hire a consultant if you want.

Video motion tracking algorithms/code
Does anyone know of good code/algorithm for tracking the coordinates of multiple points in a video file? I work in a microrobotics lab where we take lots of high-speed video of very tiny parts. Most of the parts are dark, navy blue or black, so we can put spots of retroreflective paint at the points of interest, then use very bright lets to get an extremely high-contrast video. The algorithm to track ONE dot is simple enough, just use the threshold function to convert the grayscale image to black and white, then use the regionprops function to find the white areas and their centroids...

Feature point tracking in cell biology
Hello Everyone, I am so happy that I found this wonderful forum. The reason I am writing is that I need some help regarding a project I am about to start. The Project is called Feature Point Tracking in Cell Biology.
