i have been trying to use blob tracking with cameras for a little while now, and it seems like i have not been able to get around with a major problem working with cameras. That problem is that whenever I try to use some blob detection methods, readings from the cameras are constantly fluctuating that I cannot get a very stable results. No matter how much I tune the input from the camera, at the end I am still getting the blob counts to jump between values even though nothing is moving in front of the camera. As far as I can see, I think this is mainly because of the sensitivity of the camera, and the lighting condition not being contrasting enough.
Is there anything I can do in the software side to help with this problem or is the only way to solve this problem with better lighting condition and camera setup?
