    Investigation of plasma dust is of utmost importance both for the fields of nuclear fusion and of cold industrial plasmas. Studies of mechanisms of dust generation as well as ones of plasma transport, are underway. In this work the novel diagnostics for the investigations of plasma transport is described, namely, tracking of the individual dust particle trajectories using ultra-fast camera. An algorithm is implemented which allows automatic detection of dust particles at the recorded frames and subsequent tracking of their trajectories.
