Completed histogram based tracking application. Histogram based application may be difficult to use since we don’t know the histogram of the hamsters brought in USA.

I have written another application based on average color of the background. This application much suited to low lighting environment since it tries to distinguish objects from the background. This should also work with nonwhite hamsters. But this has to be tested.

Most of the week is spent on getting a proper lighting system ready. Some of the lights brought from Simlim give reddish light, which can not be used. Finally 12 DC LED light strips were selected. They give a bright white light. LED strips were fixed to the cage using metal plates similar to lighting in a stadium.
