Solution: Object Tracker

Review the steps involved in creating an object tracker.

In this object tracker, we draw a tracking box around an object in the first frame of the video, and then that box will track the object. Let’s look at the code and try to understand it.

Read the video

First, we use the following code to read the video.

// Reads the video frame by frame;

We read the videos by getting each frame of the video as an image using VideoCapture() and continuously looping through it.

// Capturs the video
cv::VideoCapture vid("/usercode/object_detection_vid.mp4");
