After school I wrote a program that keeps track of a camera's heading by tracking twenty-five points of high brightness or contrast on the camera image. It worked well, but only at slow speeds. I thought of a better method that I will try out. This would only be used as a back-up heading determiner, but it seems it would be able to keep track of heading precisely around several corners while still remaining fairly accurate.

UPDATE: I wrote the same program using a different method in about two minutes. The new method works much better and at high speeds.
