A Survey of Video Object Tracking Methods
Parmar Mukesh U
Object tracking finds its application in several computer vision applications, such as video compression, surveillance, robotics etc. Object tracking is a process of segmenting a region of interest from a video scene and keeping track of its motion, position and occlusion. The tracking is performed by monitoring objects’ spatial and temporal changes during a video sequence, including its presence, position, size, shape Difficulties in tracking objects can arise due to abrupt object motion, changing appearance patterns of both the object and the scene, nonrigid object structures, object-to-object and object-to-scene occlusions, and camera motion. tracking of an object mainly involves two preceding steps object detection and object representation. Object detection is performed to check existence of objects in video and to precisely locate that object. In this survey, we categorize the tracking methods on the basis of the object and motion representations used, provide detailed descriptions of representative methods in each category, and examine their pros and cons.
