The Visual Object Tracking challenge 2015, VOT2015, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 62 trackers are presented. The number of tested trackers makes VOT 2015 the largest benchmark on shortterm tracking to date. For each participating tracker, a short description(More)
The problem of arbitrary object tracking has traditionally been tackled by learning a model of the object’s appearance exclusively online, using as sole training data the video itself. Despite the success of these methods, their online-only approach inherently limits the richness of the model they can learn. Recently, several attempts have been made to(More)
Correlation Filter-based trackers have recently achieved excellent performance, showing great robustness to challenging situations exhibiting motion blur and illumination changes. However, since the model that they learn depends strongly on the spatial layout of the tracked object, they are notoriously sensitive to deformation. Models based on colour(More)
The Visual Object Tracking challenge VOT2016 aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply prelearned models of object appearance. Results of 70 trackers are presented, with a large number of trackers being published at major computer vision conferences and journals in the recent years. The number of tested state-of-the-art(More)
One-shot learning is usually tackled by using generative models or discriminative embeddings. Discriminative methods based on deep learning, which are very effective in other learning scenarios, are ill-suited for one-shot learning as they need large amounts of training data. In this paper, we propose a method to learn the parameters of a deep model in one(More)
The Correlation Filter is an algorithm that trains a linear template to discriminate between images and their translations. It is well suited to object tracking because its formulation in the Fourier domain provides a fast solution, enabling the detector to be re-trained once per frame. Previous works that use the Correlation Filter, however, have adopted(More)
We show here all the results provided by the vot-toolkit [9]. We use the latest version available at the time of writing (commit d3b2b1d of the 11 Sep 2015). For completeness, we present both reports generated by the toolkit. The analysis of report challenge pools the performance per attribute, considering camera motion, illumination change, occlusion, size(More)
The Thermal Infrared Visual Object Tracking challenge 2016, VOT-TIR2016, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that work on thermal infrared (TIR) sequences and do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. VOT-TIR2016 is the second benchmark on short-term tracking in TIR sequences. Results of 24 trackers are presented. For each(More)
The solution from the previous section can then be used by defining X to be the matrix in RU×U such that Xw = w ? x. It follows that the kernel matrix K belongs to RU×U and the dual variable α is a signal in RU . The key to the correlation filter is that the circulant structure of X enables the solution to be computed efficiently in the Fourier domain. The(More)
This paper addresses the problem of retrieving those shots from a database of video sequences that match a query image. Existing architectures match the images using a high-level representation of local features extracted from the video database, and are mainly based on Bag ofWords model. Such architectures lack however the capability to scale up to very(More)
