Robust Visual Tracking using L1 Minimization
In this paper we propose a robust visual tracking method by casting tracking as a sparse approximation problem in a particle filter framework. In this framework, occlusion, corruption and other challenging issues are addressed seamlessly through a set of trivial templates. Specifically, to find the tracking target at a new frame, each target candidate is sparsely represented in the space spanned by target templates and trivial templates. The sparsity is achieved by solving an `1-regularized least squares problem. Then the candidate with the smallest projection error is taken as the tracking target. After that, tracking is continued using a Bayesian state inference framework in which a particle filter is used for propagating sample distributions over time. Two additional components further improve the robustness of our approach: 1) the nonnegativity constraints that help filter out clutter that is similar to tracked targets in reversed intensity patterns, and 2) a dynami...
