We present a novel Neuro-Immune inspired real-time tracking system that is capable of tracking morphing moving targets over non-benign backgrounds. We have employed ideas from antigen-presenting cells, T-cell interaction, together with cytokine interaction with neural systems. Our experiments show that the neuro-immune tracking system has the ability to maintain tracking a target even if the target changes shape, or is covered for periods of time by other objects.
