Compared with traditional short-term tracking, long-term tracking poses more challenges and is much closer to realistic applications. However, few works have been done and their performance have also been limited. In this work, we present a novel robust and real-time long-term tracking framework based on the proposed skimming and perusal modules. The perusal module consists of an effective bounding box regressor to generate a series of candidate proposals and a robust target verifier to infer…

High-Performance Long-Term Tracking With Meta-Updater
TLDR
This work proposes a novel offline-trained Meta-Updater that can effectively integrate geometric, discriminative, and appearance cues in a sequential manner, and then mine the sequential information with a designed cascaded LSTM module.
GlobalTrack: A Simple and Strong Baseline for Long-term Tracking
TLDR
This work proposes GlobalTrack, a pure global instance search based tracker that makes no assumption on the temporal consistency of the target's positions and scales, and it is able to perform full-image and multi-scale search of arbitrary instances with only a single query as the guide.
CoCoLoT: Combining Complementary Trackers in Long-Term Visual Tracking
TLDR
CoLoT perceives whether the trackers are following the target object through an online learned deep verification model, and accordingly activates a decision policy which selects the best performing tracker as well as it corrects the performance of the failing one.
Exploring 3 R’s of Long-term Tracking: Re-detection, Recovery and Reliability
TLDR
This paper tests redetection capability of the trackers in the wild by simulating virtual cuts, investigates the role of chance in the recovery of tracker after failure and proposes a novel metric allowing visual inference on the ability of a tracker to track contiguously at a given accuracy.
Global Tracking via Ensemble of Local Trackers
TLDR
This work combines the advantages of both strategies: tracking the target in a global view while exploiting the temporal context; and performs global tracking via ensemble of local trackers spreading the full image.
VTT: Long-term Visual Tracking with Transformers
TLDR
This paper is the first to propose a novel architecture with transformers for long-term visual tracking that utilizes a transformer encoder-decoder architecture for aggregating global information to deal with occlusion and large scale or ratio variation.

    2021 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)
  • 2021
TLDR
A new benchmark specifically dedicated to the tracking-by-language, including a large scale dataset, strong and diverse baseline methods, and a strong baseline method based on an adaptive local-global-search scheme is proposed for future works to compare.
Tracking by Joint Local and Global Search: A Target-aware Attention based Approach
TLDR
A novel and general target-aware attention mechanism (termed TANet) is proposed and integrated with a tracking-by-detection framework to conduct joint local and global search for robust tracking and resorts to adversarial training for better attention prediction.
Long-term target tracking combined with re-detection
TLDR
This work extends the state-of-the-art LADCF tracking algorithm with a re-detection component based on the SVM model, and introduces a robust confidence degree evaluation criterion that combines the maximum response criterion and the average peak-to correlation energy (APCE) to judge the confidence level of the predicted target.
Distractor-Aware Fast Tracking via Dynamic Convolutions and MOT Philosophy
TLDR
This work proposes a two-task tracking framework (named DMTrack), which utilizes two core components to achieve distractor-aware fast tracking via Dynamic convolutions (d-convs) and Multiple object tracking (MOT) philosophy, and constructs a lightweight one-shot detector using a novel dynamic convolutions generation method.
