This paper addresses the problem of selecting appearance features for multiple object tracking (MOT) in urban scenes. Over the years, a large number of features has been used for MOT. However, it is not clear whether some of them are better than others. Commonly used features are color histograms, histograms of oriented gradients, deep features from convolutional neural networks and re-identification (ReID) features. In this study, we assess how good these features are at discriminating objects… Expand


Multiple Object Tracking in Urban Traffic Scenes with a Multiclass Object Detector
This work wants to investigate the performance of a modern multiclass object detector for the MOT task in traffic scenes and shows that the object labels improve tracking performance, but that the output of object detectors are not always reliable. Expand
Hierarchical Convolutional Features for Visual Tracking
Visual object tracking is challenging as target objects often undergo significant appearance changes caused by deformation, abrupt motion, background clutter and occlusion. In this paper, we exploitExpand
Deep motion features for visual tracking
To the best of the knowledge, this paper is the first to propose fusing appearance information with deep motion features for visual tracking, and it is shown that hand-crafted, deep RGB, and deepmotion features contain complementary information. Expand

It is shown experimentally that grids of histograms of oriented gradient (HOG) descriptors significantly outperform existing feature sets for human detection, and the influence of each stage of the computation on performance is studied. Expand
WILDTRACK: A Multi-camera HD Dataset for Dense Unscripted Pedestrian Detection
A new large-scale and high-resolution dataset that has been captured with seven static cameras in a public open area, and unscripted dense groups of pedestrians standing and walking, and provides an accurate joint (extrinsic and intrinsic) calibration, as well as 7 series of 400 annotated frames for detection at a rate of 2 frames per second.

Multiple Object Tracking with Kernelized Correlation Filters in Urban Mixed Traffic
This paper built a multiple object tracking system based on KCF and background subtraction and shows that the method is competitive with state-of-the-art trackers even if it uses a much simpler data association step. Expand
