Hello, I have written a programm which can do object detection on every frame with acceptable time and accuracity. Great(Took me tons of time to try various libs)!

Now i want to count the detected objects when they passed a certain line in the image. I think when i as a human count objects - i dont count objects twice as i can remember what i counted. A program cannot do this out of the box when i detect them on every frame.

Can open cv help me here via the open cv object tracking api? I am hoping open cv will recognize the object again(is it using template matching?)

I want no implementation(ok i would take it - but not my aim ^^) but maybe a comment on this would help. Thx a lot again + Greetings, Holger

Well ok no comment yet - that means my question is too easy or too complicated. Anyway - i read this one https://www.learnopencv.com/object-tr...

It states Tracking preserves identity: Well i guess thats exactly what i want. You can pick from various tracking algorithm. I will look and see how fast that one is. closed.
