Abstract:- Moving object target detection has a significant interest in image analysis. Frames are extracted from the real-time video, and from this image the required target is detected. This paper presents a contour-based object tracking using the spatial information. The image is applied for multiple segmentations to partition the image into simpler segments. Then automatic identification is done using the contour information on the image with a target object template available in the database. The similarities are updated with spatial relationships and target is detected. Result shows the effectiveness of the contour-based target detection model.
