This paper presents a new method for the tracking of an object, and the determination of its absolute position using the image coordinates provided from multiple cameras. Existing methods used in multi-camera tracking systems require the calibration of all camera parameters, with re-calibration needed when cameras are moved. The proposed method obtains the image coordinates of an object at known locations and generates "virtual points" that are used as initial codebook vectors in a Self-Organising Map. This is achieved through a novel use of the cross-ratio invariance. The use of the Self-Organising Map also allows for camera movement, addition and removal without the need for re-calibration. Experimental results are presented demonstrating the tracking capability of the system.
