Real-time tracking is an important problem in computer vision in which most methods are based on the conventional cameras. Neuromorphic vision is a concept defined by incorporating neuromorphic vision sensors such as silicon retinas in vision processing system. With the development of the silicon technology, asynchronous event-based silicon retinas that mimic neuro-biological architectures has been developed in recent years. In this work, we combine the vision tracking algorithm of computer

The real-time tracking of single object with the advantage of high speed of 100 time bins per second is successfully realized. Our method demonstrates that the computer vision methods could be used for the neuromorphic vision processing and we can realize fast real-time tracking using neuromorphic vision sensors compare to the conventional camera.
