Global vision system works with processes of sorting, recognition and identification through some external characteristics as: color, shape and size depending of specific targets. In this paper we propose a semi-automated approach to recognize the targets in moving, where first is performed the image calibration with respect to the lighting and then proceeds to recognize a variety of colors and sizes, through several channels of different color spaces in the processing of video sequences to recognize moving targets, using the proposed algorithm called Color Segmentation (Algorithm 1) to identify a variety of light and dark colors. After semi-automated process is performed the sorting or recognizing of the moving target, where is obtained the position (x, y) of central point and the size of the area (pixels) of the segmentation region. Tests were conducted in: the location of robots in a soccer robot environment (with 94.36% of accuracy) and chestnuts selection process (with 91.80% of accuracy), if the image needs to recognize more than five detections then it proceeds to add parallelism, i.e. add a thread for each segmented color, thus improving processing time. © 2016 IEEE.
