Robust Correlation Tracking via Multi-channel Fused Features and Reliable Response Map

by   Xizhe Xue, et al.

Benefiting from its ability to efficiently learn how an object is changing, correlation filters have recently demonstrated excellent performance for rapidly tracking objects. Designing effective features and handling model drifts are two important aspects for online visual tracking. This paper tackles these challenges by proposing a robust correlation tracking algorithm (RCT) based on two ideas: First, we propose a method to fuse features in order to more naturally describe the gradient and color information of the tracked object, and introduce the fused features into a background aware correlation filter to obtain the response map. Second, we present a novel strategy to significantly reduce noise in the response map and therefore ease the problem of model drift. Systematic comparative evaluations performed over multiple tracking benchmarks demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed approach.
