Adaptive Kernel Based Tracking Using Mean-Shift

  title={Adaptive Kernel Based Tracking Using Mean-Shift},
  author={Jie-Xin Pu and Ningsong Peng},
The mean shift algorithm is an kernel based way for efficient object tracking. However, there is presently no clean mechanism for selecting kernel bandwidth when the object size is changing. We present an adaptive kernel bandwidth selection method for rigid object tracking. The kernel bandwidth is updated by using the object affine model that is estimated by using object corner correspondences between two consecutive frames. The centroid of object is registered by a special backward tracking…

Automatic Selection of Kernel-Bandwidth for Mean-Shift Object Tracking
An automatic bandwidth selection method is proposed based on backward tracking and object centroid registration based on the analysis of similarity of object kernel-histogram in different scales, i.e. the Bhattacharyya coefficient, and is applied to track vehicle changing in size with encouraging results.
