Paper Abstract

An approach to target tracking is presented that utilizes adaptive gray-scale correlation. The algorithm is implemented in software and executed in real-time on commercial-off-the-shelf image processing hardware. The basic correlation scheme utilizes non-adaptive commercial library calls that rely on image pyramids for speed. A framework is described for implementing a general-purpose adaptive correlation capability. The approach is robust and tolerant to scenarios involving rotation, scale changes, and contrast reversal. The algorithm also solves problems associated with walk-off.
