I am doing a game, where several players will have an fluorescent marker (and of course UV lamps), while the room will be almost dark. This way I will have bright colored spots moving in the dark. In a way is similar on how IR markers ares used in motion capture, with IR cameras.
I want to follow the markers and detect it´s position in camera, I only need it´s movement in 2d, and the gamers will be sitting, just moving their marker right and left. Now, some will be near, and other far, so some markers will like like balls and other like small points.
I am new to OpenCV, not sure if start using the corner detection algorithms or try to detect them like ball or blob. I think there must be son algorithm already used for capturing IR markers, but I am still exploring OpenCV, so I am not sure where to start.
Any suggestion or commentary will be welcome.
