In this paper, a new effective 3D object remote-tracking system using the disparity information is suggested, in which not only the target object can be tracked in real-time, but also the target object is displayed in 3D at the receiver by only using the disparity information taken from the stereo object images. By using the disparity information of stereo image sequences, the target object can be detected and its location coordinates are extracted and then, using these coordinate values the stereo object tracking is accomplished by controlling the stereo camera that is mounted on a pan/tilt. And, the disparity information is sent to the receiver together with the reference image for effective 3D reconstruction of the target image under tracking. Some experimental results show the proposed system has much less transmitting data and shorter processing time for real-time 3D target tracking through the comparison to those of the conventional algorithms.
