The Fitts correlation algorithm is known to be optimal in measuring small image translations. As the position measurement portion of an image-based tracker, it yields excellent track fidelity over a sequence of images in which the tracked target exhibits small shifts from the predicted position. Real-world experience, however, informs us that the tracked target rarely confines itself to small-scale translational motion in the image plane, and sometimes changes size during the track period.
