Image Cues Fusion for Object Tracking Based on Particle Filter
Particle filter is a powerful algorithm to deal with non-linear and non-Gaussian tracking problems. However the algorithm relying only upon one image cue often fails in challenging scenarios. To overcome this, the paper first presents a color likelihood to capture color distribution of the object based on Bhattacharry coefficient, and a structure likelihood representing high level knowledge regarding the object. Together with the widely used edge likelihood, the paper further proposes a straightforward image cues fusion for object tracking in the framework of particle filter, under assumption that the visual measurement of each image cue is independent of each other. The experiments on real image sequences have shown that the method is effective, robust to illumination changes, pose variations and complex background.
