We describe an algorithm dubbed Suppression via Disk Covering (SDC) to efficiently select a set of strong, spatially distributed key-points, and we show that selecting keypoint in this way significantly improves visual tracking. We also describe two efficient implementation schemes for the popular Adaptive Non-Maximal Suppression algorithm, and show empirically that SDC is significantly faster while providing the same improvements with respect to tracking robustness. In our particular… CONTINUE READING
