Regression tracking with data relevance determination
This paper 1 addresses the problem of efficient visual 2D template tracking in image sequences. We adopt a discriminative approach in which the observations at each frame yield direct predictions of a parametrisation of the state (e.g. position/scale/rotation) of the tracked target. To this end, a Bayesian Mixture of Experts (BME) is trained on a dataset of image patches that are generated by applying artificial transformations to the template at the first frame. In contrast to other methods in the literature, we explicitly address the problem that the prediction accuracy can deteriorate drastically for observations that are not similar to the ones in the training set; such observations are common in case of partial occlusions or of fast motion. To do so, we couple the BME with a probabilistic kernel-based classifier which, when trained, can determine the probability that a new/unseen observation can accurately predict the state of the target (the 'relevance' of the observat...
