Paper Abstract

A new method for target tracking is presented. The centroid of moving target images from a FLIR imaging sensor is tracked. The position of the centroid and the offset of the centroid between two consecutive images are taken as the measurable variables. Their measurement noise statistics are analyzed and can be expressed by video noise characteristics. The offset measurement noise is shown to be autocorrelated and is considered in the new tracking model. Experiment results show that subpixel tracking accuracy is achieved.
