This paper presents a real-time Multi-Object-Tracker implemented on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). This system is able to track three objects simultaneously using different algorithms to get the best result. Each algorithm has its own field of application and the user can decide which algorithm is used for individual objects. Using the dynamic, partial reconfiguration capability of Xilinx FPGAs, the algorithms can be exchanged during runtime without interrupting the object-tracking. To obtain a self reconfigurable system the Internal Configuration Access Port (ICAP) is used. In this application the needed time to exchange the algorithms has to be as short as possible. In this paper we present a design to achieve the theoretical maximum throughput of the ICAP of 400 MB/s.
