Multi-object tracking (MOT) aims at estimating bounding boxes and identities of objects in videos. Most methods obtain identities by associating detection boxes whose scores are higher than a threshold. The objects with low detection scores, e.g . occluded objects, are simply thrown away, which brings non-negligible true object missing and fragmented trajectories. To solve this problem, we present a simple, effective and generic association method, tracking by associating almost every detection… 

ColorByte: A real time MOT method using fast appearance feature based on ByteTrack

A fast appearance feature is designed, which is a simple but relatively accurate method, to substitute cumbersome Re-ID component in MOT methods and ByteTrack is the new SOTA association algorithm in MOT benchmarks which introduces an extra association on objects with low score.

It is argued that ethical and privacy concerns could be addressed through four lenses: algorithm, system, model, and data.

High-fidelity ship imaging trajectory extraction via an instance segmentation model

This work proposes a framework that combines instance segmentation and the improved Bytetrack multi-target tracking algorithm, which first obtains the exact position and outline of the ship, and secondly completes the ship target tracking according to ByTetrack, aiming to solve the problem of ship occlusion in video ship tracking.

Quasi-Dense Similarity Learning is presented, which densely samples hundreds of object regions on a pair of images for contrastive learning and which rivals the performance of state-of-the-art tracking methods on all benchmarks and sets a new state of theart on the large-scale BDD100K MOT benchmark, while introducing negligible computational overhead to the detector.

Detection Recovery in Online Multi-Object Tracking with Sparse Graph Tracker

SGT converts video data into a graph where detections, their connections, and the relational features of two connected nodes are represented by nodes, edges, and edge features, respectively, which allow SGT to track targets with tracking candidates selected by top- K scored detections with large K.
