I have a unique challange that has been keeping me up at night
with no solid solution as of yet.
As there is usually a myriad of ways to achieve the same goal.
I'm looking for some advice on tracking motion down a 16 meter
The idea is to generate color "blobs" with motion trails on a low resolution LED wall with a literal resolution of 160x10.
The "blobs" will need to follow multiple objects(IE: if two people
are walking towards each other down the hallway each has a unique color "blob")
Since the hallway is narrow and the celling is low I believe we will need multiple sources for range data to track the motion down the hall "accurately".
The main question I have is what would be the best method for the tracking? IR, ultrasound or multiple cameras?
So far the best idea that we have come up with is to use multiple
ultrasound sensors pinged sequentially to pool
height data for input into jitter matrices.
Comparing frames of data to then slide objects based on movement in the sonar array.
We were looking at using 16 of the max sonars (1 per meter)...
but I'm afraid that the area they look at may be too narrow.
so that if someone stops between sensors the range data will return to default.
If anyone has recommendations I would love to hear them.
Thanks in advance.
