-Installation
-============
-
-Tested on: Matlab R2010a, VS2010, Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), OpenCV2.2
-1.1 Install OpenCV
- a) make sure to compile opencv
- b) make sure that system variable PATH includes the directory to the OpenCV DLLs
-1.2 Check paths in 'compile.m' file
-1.3 run 'compile.m', if you get errors go to OpenTLD discussion group
-1.4 run 'run_TLD.m', TLD should track a motorbike

+TLD (aka Pradator)
+----------------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+TLD is an algorithm for tracking of unknown objects in unconstrained video streams. The object of interest is defined by a bounding box in a single frame. TLD simultaneously tracks the object, learns its appearance and detects it whenever it appears in the video.
