In the present work the concepts of template matching through Normalized Cross Correlation (NCC) has been used to implement a robust real time object tracking system. In this implementation a wireless surveillance pinhole camera has been used to grab the video frames from the non ideal environment. Once the object has been detected it is tracked by employing an efficient template matching algorithm. The templates used for the matching purposes are generated dynamically. This ensures that any change in the pose of the object does not hinder the tracking procedure. To automate the tracking process the camera is mounted on a disc coupled with stepper motor, which is synchronized with a tracking algorithm.
