i need help in object detection with python. there are many examples in the opencv folders. one of this is plane_tracker like in this video:

I want to defined my area (rectangle per mouse) like in this video and only inside the boundary i want to dectect/track colors for example balls,different color of lights (leds).

Here is an example for color detection:

import cv2
import numpy as np

def getthresholdedimg(hsv):
    yellow = cv2.inRange(hsv,np.array((20,100,100)),np.array((30,255,255)))
    blue = cv2.inRange(hsv,np.array((100,100,100)),np.array((120,255,255)))
    both = cv2.add(yellow,blue)
    return both

c = cv2.VideoCapture(0)
width,height = c.get(3),c.get(4)
print "frame width and height : ", width, height

    _,f =
    f = cv2.flip(f,1)
    blur = cv2.medianBlur(f,5)
    hsv = cv2.cvtColor(f,cv2.COLOR_BGR2HSV)
    both = getthresholdedimg(hsv)
    erode = cv2.erode(both,None,iterations = 3)
    dilate = cv2.dilate(erode,None,iterations = 10)

    image,contours,hierarchy = cv2.findContours(dilate,cv2.RETR_LIST,cv2.CHAIN_APPROX_SIMPLE)

    for cnt in contours:
        x,y,w,h = cv2.boundingRect(cnt)
        cx,cy = x+w/2, y+h/2

        if 20 < hsv.item(cy,cx,0) < 30:
            print "yellow :", x,y,w,h
        elif 100 < hsv.item(cy,cx,0) < 120:
            print "blue :", x,y,w,hHow can i now put these two codes together for:


    if cv2.waitKey(25) == 27:


How can i now put these two codes together for:

define my area per mouse an detect inside der rectangle (area) differnt colors? Thanks a lot !
