In this paper, we will describe a number of research projects at Napier University on pedestrian tracking. This work started with systems based on ordinary cameras working at visible wavelengths. This work has expanded to include infrared imaging systems (of varying resolutions). Recently, combinations of visible and infrared systems have been used, and we have been collaborating with Irisys (Infrared Integrated Systems Ltd.) to develop tracking systems that can accurately measure the trajectories of pedestrians in real time.
