Paper Abstract

Aiming at the problem of tracking 3D target in forward-looking infrared (FLIR) image, this paper proposes a high-accuracy robust tracking algorithm based on SIFT and particle filter. The main contribution of this paper is the proposal of a new method of estimating the affine transformation matrix parameters based on Monte Carlo methods of particle filter. At first, we extract SIFT features on infrared image, and calculate the initial affine transformation matrix with optimal candidate key points. Then we take affine transformation parameters as particles, and use SIR (Sequential Importance Resampling) particle filter to estimate the best position, thus implementing our algorithm. The experiments demonstrate that our algorithm proves to be robust with high accuracy.
