  • Patent number: 10297040
    Abstract: An image processing method for tracking an object, the method includes: specifying a first range in which a first target is searched for and a second range in which a second target is searched for in a next frame by referring to a storage device that stores past frames captured by a capturing device; changing the first range and/or the second range in the next frame such that an area in which the first range and the second range specified in the next frame overlap each other is less than a predetermined value in a case where the overlapping area is equal to or greater than the predetermined value; and searching for, in the changed first range and the changed second range, and specifying a region corresponding to the first target and a region corresponding to the second target in the next frame.
