Searching far & wide for a marker system which might enable a follow cam revealed this:

Previous experience showed the classic international pink was the best chroma keying material & a doughnut was the easiest shape for current cameras to isolate. When chroma keying is combined with a unique shape, it gives 2 layers of redundancy.

A 4k camera detecting a full body, international pink, digital camouflage suit would be ideal.

Next would be digital camouflage markers, but given the reality of only having enough money for 640x480, we have only

Where to place the markers so a single camera can detect range is the next problem.

It's become quite clear that retroreflective marker is the new fashion statement. There are ongoing, unreliable attempts to automatically isolate a human body from an image.

Making the world easy for robots to navigate, rather than making the robots better at navigating the world is the theme. The markers are going to become normal attire before the autonomous camera works.
