Image processing has provided ease to many of the applications where the task could have been very difficult with some other techniques. One such example is the case where the impact of water stream is to be analyzed; now there are various possible ways in which one can study the impact of running water stream. The principles of fluid mechanics in this case can be simplified if an object moving in the stream is taken into account and its motion is analyzed.
In order to understand the motion exhibited by the object moving under the influence of running stream it becomes mandatory to continuously track the object in the stream and this is where Image Processing comes into role.
The object moving in the running water stream due to the force exerted by the stream can be tracked utilizing the principles of image processing. One could employ one or more of the following available approaches to do so:
- Gaussian smoothing
- Blob Detection
- Color Tracking
