Unmanned positioning and navigation system is gradually getting involved in more and more aspects of humans’ daily life. It provides a possibility to automatically control the moving vehicles. This meets the requirement from both the pursuit for a more convenient life, and the pursuit for a more serious attitude towards human life. Vision tracking system, or say real-time recognition system plays an important role in achieving the unmanned control. This real-time efficiency can be simply achieved with the help of a computer camera and a processer with sufficient working capacity given a well designed algorithm. This makes the vision tracking system have a brilliant future. This paper demonstrates the design and development process of the elliptical and quadrilateral tracking system. The selection of the efficient algorithm, the construction of the system based on C++ and the evaluation of the performance will be discussed. The implementation of the algorithms on ROS will also be demonstrated as the final step.
