Shadow-Oriented Tracking Method for Multi-Target Tracking in Video-SAR

  title={Shadow-Oriented Tracking Method for Multi-Target Tracking in Video-SAR},
  author={Xiaochuan Ni and Xiaoling Zhang and Xu Zhan and Z. Yang and Jun Shi and Shunjun Wei and Tianjiao Zeng},
This work focuses on multi-target tracking in Video synthetic aperture radar. Specifically, we refer to tracking based on targets' shadows. Current methods have limited accuracy as they fail to consider shadows' characteristics and surroundings fully. Shades are low-scattering and varied, resulting in missed tracking. Surroundings can cause interferences, resulting in false tracking. To solve these, we propose a shadow-oriented multi-target tracking method (SOTrack). To avoid false tracking, a…

This article presents a joint moving target detection approach for video SAR using a dual faster region-based convolutional neural network (Faster R-CNN), which algorithmically combines the shadow Detection in the SAR image and the Doppler energy detection in the range-Doppler (RD) spectrum domain, and this new approach can suppress false alarm sufficiently.

Video SAR Moving Target Indication Using Deep Neural Network

The proposed approaches have been tested by both the simulated and the real data, and a comparison to classical processing is given.

ByteTrack: Multi-Object Tracking by Associating Every Detection Box

A simple, effective and generic association method, tracking by associating almost every detection box instead of only the high score ones, named ByteTrack, which achieves state-of-the-art performance on MOT20, HiEve and BDD100K tracking benchmarks.

MOT16: A Benchmark for Multi-Object Tracking

A new release of the MOTChallenge benchmark, which focuses on multiple people tracking, and offers a significant increase in the number of labeled boxes, but also provides multiple object classes beside pedestrians and the level of visibility for every single object of interest.

StrongSORT: Make DeepSORT Great Again

A classic tracker is first revisited, and then is significantly improved from multiple perspectives such as object detection, feature embedding, and trajectory association, and a Gaussian-smoothed interpolation based on Gaussian process regression to relieve the missing detection is proposed.

SAR Ground Moving Target Refocusing by Combining mRe³ Network and TVβ-LSTM

By combining a modified real-time recurrent regression network and a newly designed trajectory smoothing long short-term memory network for refocusing the ground moving target (GMT) in the synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image, the mRe3 has stronger robustness and a better trajectory reconstruction precision compared with the existing tracking methods.

Fully-Convolutional Siamese Networks for Object Tracking

A basic tracking algorithm is equipped with a novel fully-convolutional Siamese network trained end-to-end on the ILSVRC15 dataset for object detection in video and achieves state-of-the-art performance in multiple benchmarks.
