Hello maxMSP supercrowd!
I am having trouble tracking 3 blobs from IR LEDs. The problem I am running into is that when objects exit and return from the camera view the blob order is lost. The shapes will certainly be coming in and out of view so this is something I must deal with. It is important that the objects are assigned specific blobs and maintain this order throughout.
I thought that one possibility of overcoming this is by creating simple patterns on each object with the IR leds: a square, triangle, single dot (for example). Hopefully using a combination of cv.jit objects to recognise these simple patterns and assign them to blobs (cv.jit.moments and cv.jit.learn to start). I wonder if anyone has had any luck with this this kind of pattern/ shape recognition?
Might it be better to distinguish between the 3 blobs by brightness? If anyone has tried any other methods with any success (or failures) I would love to hear your comments!
