Abstract: In this paper, an algorithm is presented for colour object detection and tracking based on colour threshold technique.Thisalgorithm can be implemented to track an object of any colour. The same has been demonstrated on a red coloured phone. Initially, this red coloured phone is detected from a real-time image using colour threshold method. Itsí accuracy is improved by the use of morphological process where the object to be detected is denoted as white leaving the background dark. Then itsí location is tracked by obtaining itsí coordinates from the image. This process can then be used in iteration for real-time video processing.

Keywords: Colored object detection, Object tracking, Image processing, and Video Processing.
