FastTrack

Test Clang Format Continous Build License: GPL v3 Website

About

Tracking objects in video recording can be tedious. Existing software can be expensive, the learning curve can be steep, necessitate a powerful computer, and the workflow can not be easily adapted when the project evolved.

FastTrack is a free (as freedom) desktop tracking software, easy to install, easy to use, and performant. The software can be downloaded for Linux, macOS, and Windows, and a public API is available to embed the core of the software in any C++/Qt project.

Two main features are implemented in the software:

  • An automatic tracking algorithm that can detect and track objects (conserving the objects' identities across the video recording).
  • A manual review of the tracking where errors can be corrected rapidly and easily to achieve 100% accuracy.
