Abstract(in English) Recently, motion capturing, which converts the free-range motions on images of the objects obtained by camera to numerical data, plays an important role in the production of animation with the computer graphics. Time-consuming editing process by humans after acquiring the images by camera may be necessary, when individual markers indicating location are not differentiated and make crossing motions each other. In this paper, a new method to use colored markers to identify individually each other is proposed. A sophisticated method of identification and localization of colored markers and a real-time image processing hardware with filter are described.
