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)
There are three major issues for visual object trackers: model representation, search and model update. In this paper we address the last two issues for a specific model representation, grid based distribution models by means of channel-based distribution fields. Particularly we address the comparison part of searching. Previous work in the area has used(More)
—The labyrinth game is a simple yet challenging platform, not only for humans but also for control algorithms and systems. The game is easy to understand but still very hard to master. From a system point of view, the ball behaviour is in general easy to model but close to the obstacles there are severe non-linearities. Additionally, the far from flat(More)
We propose a method for detecting obstacles on the railway in front of a moving train using a monocular thermal camera. The problem is motivated by the large number of collisions between trains and various obstacles, resulting in reduced safety and high costs. The proposed method includes a novel way of detecting the rails in the imagery, as well as a way(More)
While autonomously driving systems accumulate more and more sensors as well as highly specialized visual features and engineered solutions, the human visual system provides evidence that visual input and simple low level image features are sufficient for successful driving. In this paper we propose extensions (non-linear update and coherence weighting) to(More)
Citation: Felsberg M, Öfjäll K and Lenz R (2015) Unbiased decoding of biologically motivated visual feature descriptors. Visual feature descriptors are essential elements in most computer and robot vision systems. They typically lead to an abstraction of the input data, images, or video, for further processing, such as clustering and machine learning. In(More)
