Automatic tracking of a specified person is an important technique especially in surveillance. Although various techniques for tracking a person employing a robot system are proposed, nobody attempts to recognize the motion of the tracked person yet. If a robot recognizes the motion of a tracked person, the robot would be able to realize a more intelligent tracking and actions. The purpose of this research is to propose a new tracking system employing a visually controlled aerial robot which recognizes a motion of the specified person in real-time. In this paper, we show the designed spherical aerial robot and the developed motion recognition method. The results of experiments using the developed system show satisfactory performance.
