Development of a moving object detection system based on Panda Board is described in this paper. The main modules along with their functions are presented as follows:(a)one USB camera is used for capturing video frames,(b)the embedded Panda Board is exploited as the core on which the video frame processing algorithm for detecting moving object is implemented,(c) a wireless USB control board integrating both mouse and keyboard is used for switching on/off the detection system,and(d)a HDMI monitor is employed to demonstrate the detection results. Specifically,the frame difference moving object detection algorithm running on the embedded Panda Board is designed by means of PC Simulink. The designed algorithm is downloaded to the Panda Board for execution. The moving object detection system can operate independently of PC and Simulink development environment. It has many merits,i.e. simple construction,low cost and strong scalability to more complex algorithms. It thus has a potential for vaster applications.
