Abstract
As to object tracking, the local context surrounding of the target could provide much effective information for getting a robust tracker. The spatial-temporal context (STC) learning algorithm proposed recently considers the information of the dense context around the target and has achieved a better performance. However STC only used image intensity as the object appearance model. But this appearance model not enough to deal with complicated tracking scenarios. In this paper, we propose a novel object appearance model learning algorithm. Our approach formulates the spatial-temporal relationships between the object of interest and its local context based on a Bayesian framework, which models the statistical correlation between high-level features (Circular-Multi-Block Local Binary Pattern) from the target and its surrounding regions. The tracking problem is posed by computing a visual saliency map, and obtaining the best target location by maximizing an object location likelihood function. Extensive experimental results on public benchmark databases show that our algorithm outperforms the original STC algorithm and other state-of-the-art tracking algorithms.
