Author(s): Jianguo Ling; Erqi Liu; Lei Yang; Jie Yang

Paper Abstract

We present an approach that incorporates multi-information, including intensity value, spatial relation, and local standard deviation information of the pixels in target region, into kernel density estimation for constructing the kernel-based infrared (IR) target model. The incorporated information can complement each other for a target-tracking task. This constructed target model is evaluated based on the relative entropy of the two classes and is applied in a mean shift tracking system for IR target tracking to verify the effectiveness.
