Visual Tracking based on Cooperative model

In this paper, we propose a cooperative model combined the multi-task reverse sparse representation model (MTRSR) and the AdaBoost classifier, which were used to cope with the disturbing of target gradient information caused by motion blur or target serious occlusion, and a descriptive dictionary were used to estimate the weights of each candidates. First, we use the MTRSR model to get the blur kernel which were used to get the blur target template set, meanwhile the confidence of the candidates is also obtained by the reconstruction error. Then we use the HOG features of the target templates to get the descriptive dictionary to calculate the weights of the candidates, and a AdaBoost classifier is used to calculate the confidences of all candidates. Finally, the best target is retrieved by the sum of production of weight value and the two confidences. The experimental data show that the proposed algorithm can fully cope with the target’s information change which were caused by motion blur and target occlusion in the complex scene, and our algorithm can further improve the accuracy and robustness in visual tracking.
