On-line object tracking (OLOT) has been a core technology in computer vision, and its importance has been increasing rapidly. Because this technology is utilized for battery-operated products, energy consumption must be minimized. This paper describes a method of adaptive frame-rate optimization to satisfy that requirement. An energy trade-off occurs between image capturing and object tracking. Therefore, the method optimizes the frame-rate based on always changed object speed for minimizing the total energy while taking into account the trade-off. Simulation results show a maximum energy reduction of 50.0%, and an average reduction of 35.9% without serious tracking accuracy degradation.
