For many years, vehicle tracking of images has suffered from the problems of occlusions and sudden variations in illumination. In order to resolve these occlusion problems, we have been proposing the Spatio-Temporal Markov Random Field model (S-T MRF) for segmentation of spatio-temporal images. This S-T MRF optimizes the segmentation boundaries of occluded vehicles and their motion vectors simultaneously, by referring to textures and segment labeling correlations along the temporal axis, as…
