Paper Abstract

The method presented is based on iterating the tracking window center towards the center of the target. The algorithm doesn't require the target inside the tracking window initially. The tracking window can then be adjusted iteratively towards the center of the target and achieve high tracking accuracy within only one frame of the image. In the process of executing several frames of target image tracking, it can evaluate some movement parameters and some physical parameters of the target. In addition, this algorithm is not restrained by the pattern of the target movement, and has a short processing period, good real-time quality, and insensitiveness to noise. Computer IP system simulations show that the algorithm works well for a variety of targets, and the center tracking error is less than 0.2 pixel per frame under the middle SNR condition.
