The core component of most modern trackers is a discriminative classifier, tasked with distinguishing between the target and the surrounding environment. To cope with natural image changes, this classifier is typically trained with translated and scaled sample patches. Such sets of samples are riddled with redundancies-any overlapping pixels are constrained(More)
Recent years have seen greater interest in the use of discrim-inative classifiers in tracking systems, owing to their success in object detection. They are trained online with samples collected during tracking. Unfortunately, the potentially large number of samples becomes a computational burden, which directly conflicts with real-time requirements. On the(More)
Feature extraction, coding and pooling, are important components on many contemporary object recognition paradigms. In this paper we explore novel pooling techniques that encode the second-order statistics of local descriptors inside a region. To achieve this effect, we introduce multiplicative second-order analogues of average and max-pooling that together(More)
The Visual Object Tracking challenge 2014, VOT2014, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 38 trackers are 2 Authors Suppressed Due to Excessive Length presented. The number of tested trackers makes VOT 2014 the largest benchmark on short-term tracking to date. For(More)
This work presents a novel Bayesian formulation for aligning faces in unseen images. Our approach is closely related to Constrained Local Models (CLM) [2] and Active Shape Models (ASM) [6], where an ensemble of local feature detectors are constrained to lie within the subspace spanned by a Point Distribution Model (PDM). Fitting a model to an image(More)
— This article is concerned with the simulation of pursuit. The article describes one solution for the problem of pursuit of objects moving on a plane by using a mobile robot and an active vision system. The solution deals with the interaction of different control systems using visual feedback and it is accomplished by the implementation of a visual gaze(More)
