Abstract
This article discusses a technique for following an object of interest through a sequence of time varying imagery. The approach described is based on matching strong curvilinear edge features using a chain code 'representation for the edges. A simple match function suitable for efficient real-time implementation is described. It can handle reasonable amounts of obscuration, small rotations and edge fragmentation. We have applied this process to several infrared image sequences with results that are better than standard correlation strategies and that meet our operational requirements.
