tracked object speed


Is there any part of the software which is responsible for tracked objects’ speed and relative position estimation?


Hello Vita,

can you elaborate more about what is that you are trying to achieve/ what is missing for you?
what do you mean “part of the software”? DriveWorks?


Hi Shay,

Sorry for not being clear enough.
Yes, I mean DriveWorks.

I would like to test the feature of calulating obstacle’s velocity and position relative to ego vehicle.

Could you navigate me to the source code part or DriveWorks API documentation where this is done/documented (for example the speed of vehicle in front of ego-vehicle is calculated)?

The usual workflow I’ve seen before:
object detection -> tracking -> object’s speed/position estimation.
That’s why I mentioned tracked object in my initial question.

If my question is still not clear, please let me know!
Thank you!


hello Vita,

please refer to sample “Basic Object Tracker Sample” in the documentation.
the documentation is located at /usr/local/driveworks-1.2/doc

the source code for the samples is located at /usr/local/driveworks-1.2/samples

you should be able to test the feature of object tracking based on this sample.

Hi Shay,

Thanks for your reply.
I’ve checked that sample and this is not exactly what we need.

What I am asking is:

Is there a further step of calculating the velocity of tracked object? Is there such part in the DriveWorks software?


Hi Vita,
So I guess you are enquiring about any module or API to compute velocity of the tracked object.
Unfortunately, we do not have it in DW 1.2.
