Jetson Xavier NX Lesson 12: Intelligent Scanning for Objects of Interest

In this Video Tutorial we show how a camera on a pan/tilt control system can be programmed to search for an object of interest, and then track it when found.  Our system has two independent camera systems, and each can track a separate item of interest independently. The code is written in python, using the OpenCV library. The video takes you through the lesson step-by-step, and then the code is included below for your convenience.

If you want to play along at home, we are using the Jetson Xavier NX, which you can pick up HERE. You will also need to of the bracket/servo kits, which you can get HERE, and then two Raspberry Pi Version two cameras, available HERE.
