Hi all,

i want to develop an algorithm which detects human motion from a camera, using openCV under visual studio 2010. Could you please tell me which things should i look first(such as other posts, tutorials or codes), so i can understand the steps of building this algorithm. I am a new guy at openCV so any help from you would be appreciated.

I would try to detect persons using the person model of latent svm:

or using HOG:

Then, in each frame, I would locate the person in the frame, save the bounding box around it from frame to frame and check if the bounding box changes. If the location/size of the bounding box changes, then a motion is detected.
