In this paper we propose a novel framework for the detection and tracking in real-time of unknown object in a video stream. We decompose the problem into two separate modules: detection and learning. The detection module can use multiple keypoint-based methods (ORB, FREAK, BRISK, SIFT, SURF and more) inside a fallback model, to correctly localize the object frame by frame exploiting the strengths of each method. The learning module updates the object model, with a growing and pruning approach, to account for changes in its appearance and extracts negative samples to further improve the detector performance. To show the effectiveness of the proposed tracking-by-detection algorithm, we present quantitative results on a number of challenging sequences where the target object goes through changes of pose, scale and illumination.

Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel framework for the detection and tracking in real-time of unknown object in a video stream. We decompose the problem into two separate modules: detection and learning. The detection module can use multiple keypoint-based methods (ORB, FREAK, BRISK, SIFT, SURF and more) inside a fallback model, to correctly localize the object frame by frame exploiting the strengths of each method. The learning module updates the object model, with a growing and pruning approach, to account for changes in its appearance and extracts negative samples to further improve the detector performance. To show the effectiveness of the proposed tracking-by-detection algorithm, we present quantitative results on a number of challenging sequences where the target object goes through changes of pose, scale and illumination.
