Welcome to my site
My name is Ignacio Mellado. I am an engineer working on intelligent machines, especially on visual perception and control. Computer Vision and Machine Learning are usual suspects in my lab. In this website you will find a selection of my projects, experiments and random thoughts.
Tracking an object over a video sequence is a classic problem in Computer Vision. A tracking algorithm looks for the object at every new frame, given a model of the object. This model holds information [...]
There are tons of tutorials on color-based tracking that use the histogram back-projection to find those pixels in the image that are most likely to be object pixels. Then, they use MeanShift [...]
After normalization, each bin value in the color histogram expresses the probability that a pixel has a color in bin B, given that it is a pixel of object O. We can express this as the conditional probability [...]
