Frequently Asked Questions
What is the license of the basic ESM visual tracking software?
This work has been fully funded by INRIA. The basic version of the ESM
visual tracking software is provided for research purposes only. A
license must be obtained from INRIA for commercial applications. See
the LICENSE file provided with the software.
Do you have a PRO version of the software available?
Yes. A PRO version of the ESM software is available, please contact Dr. Ezio Malis
Which OS does it work under?
The ESM software works on Linux and Windows.
The basic vesion of the ESM software did not work for my image sequence. Why?
The available simplified version of the software only works under the following conditions:
- tracking rigid planar objects or any rigid object
- the object must be sufficiently textured
- small displacements of the tracked object between
two consecutive images
- no illumination changes
- no occlusions
Please verify that you used the software according to the conditions
I have used the ESM software under nominal
conditions but it did not work for my image sequence. Why?
The ESM software has two input
parameters that you can adjust to improve its performance. Try to
increase the number of iterations and/or decrease the precision. The
default parameters have been chosen for tracking at 100Hz an area of interest
of 100x100 pixels with a Pentium 4 3.2GHz.
