Reading life log is a type of techniques to automatically and unconsciously record people's reading intentions, interests and habits. Besides, it can also serve as various assistants in our daily life. In this paper, a reading-life log system is implemented by a head-mounted and unobtrusive video camera with a high resolution and a high shutter speed. We utilize DP matching, and propose a text-based frame mosaicing method to integrate multiple frames in a clip. The developed system is tested in the various environments indoor and outdoor. The experimental results show that our system can provide reliable outputs with respect to the most correct responses. The infrequent misregistration between lines also indicates the feasibility and validity of the text-based frame mosaicing.
