Hi dear friend i m working on my project gesture recognition I need to use kalman  filter if any one have good code for tracking human body plz post here i really need of that.

Actually, a Kalman Filter would be a GREAT addition to RoboRealm! I have a C version of the code that I use to stable out (filter) data noise. I could email you the code if you like.

Thanks a lot for replying please send the code as i test for my project. Waiting for reply.
thanks a lot again

Thank you very much for your code actually I need a code which track the object in video sequences. I mean to update and predict the x y width height of the object. If any one have plz send i need fro my project. And code must be in Opencv with MSVC then its very good for me.
