Motion Detection with Image Acquisition Toolbox & Simulink

18 Jun 2004 (Updated )

Motion detection algorithm in Simulink using the Image Acquisition and Signal Processing Toolbox.

iatgetDemoObject
function obj = iatgetDemoObject
% IATGETDEMOOBJECT Returns the object used by the motion detection demo.
%
%    IATGETDEMOOBJECT finds the VIDEOINPUT object used by the motion detection
%    demo and returns it.

%    See also VIDEOINPUT.
