Abstract

Support Vector Tracking (SVT) integrates the Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier into an optic-flow based tracker. Instead of minimizing an intensity difference function between successive frames, SVT maximizes the SVM classification score. To account for large motions between successive frames we build pyramids from the support vectors and use a coarse-to-fine approach in the classification stage. We show results of using a homogeneous quadratic polynomial kernel-SVT for vehicle tracking in image sequences.
