Paper Abstract

The paper presents a new high-accuracy automatic target tracking algorithm which does not involve image segmentation. The method constructs a function which is based on local gray- level information. The function can evaluate the deviation vector between the target's center and the tracking window center and then automatically adjust the tracking window iteratively towards the target's center to achieve automatic target tracking. The algorithm can achieve high tracking accuracy. It is not sensitive to noise and is not restrained by the movement pattern of the target. As the method does not use segment processing, it provides better real- time quality, a short processing period, and is very easily implemented. The implementation by the microcomputer image processing system demonstrates that the method is especially practical for infrared images and works well for infrared images in complex environment.
