Visual tracking is a critical task in surveillance and activity analysis. One of the major issues in visual target tracking is variations in illumination. In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm based on discrete cosine transform (DCT) to handle illumination variations, since illumination variations are mainly reflected in the low-frequency band. For instance, low illumination in a frame leads to low value DC coefficient as vias versa. We modify DC coefficient to achieve illumination… Expand
