Object Tracking for Conveyor Belts in Sorting Sites

In this project, the student should help us in developing a system to detect objects on conveyor belts. This involves several complications, e.g., the objects overlap, always look different, the speed of the conveyor belt changed dynamically, and so on. We use camera system to visually record the objects and want to be able to distinguish and classify them at runtime. Furthermore, they should be identified with lightsignals coming from a project from above.
