1 Visual Tracking Frédéric Jurie LASMEA CNRS / Université Blaise Pascal France
2 What is it? Visual tracking is the problem of following moving targets through an image sequence. Tracking systems must address two basic problems: motion and matching. Motion problem: predict the location of an image element or a spatial attitude of the object being tracked in the image, using previous positions. Identify a limited search region in the image or in the pose space in which the element is expected to be found with high probability Matching problem: (also known as detection or location) identify the image element within the designated search region. Find correspondences (frame to frame, model to frame).
3 Introduction Favorite solutions for the motion problem are Kalman Filter [P.S. Mayback  Stochastic models, estimation and control, vol1/2. Academic Press, London, 1979], an optimal recursive estimator of the state of a system (under restrictive assumptions), or Particles Filters [S. Arulampalam, S. Maskell, N. Gordon, T. Clapp, A tutorial on particle filters, IEEE Trans. on signal processing, 2001] which can deal with nongaussian estimations.
4 The matching problem requires a similarity metric to compare candidate pairs of image elements between: current frame / next frame current frame / object model This is closely related to the correspondence problem (stereovision / object recognition) where the same image elements must be detected and matched in two or more different images. A tracking specific problem is data association that is finding the true position of the moving target in presence of equally valid candidates (i.e. intersecting trajectories) [Y. BarShalom and T.E. Fortman, Tracking and data association, Academic Press, London, 1988].
5 Performances / characteristics that are sought of a video tracker: Robustness to clutter: it should not be distracted by image elements resembling the target being tracked Robustness to occlusion: target should not be lost because of temporary target occlusion, but resumed correctly when the target reappears False positive and negatives: only valid targets should be classified as such, and any other image elements ignored (the number of false alarms should be as small as possible) Agility: the tracker should follow target moving with significant speed and acceleration Stability: to lock and accuracy should be maintained indefinitely over time Computational cost: compatible with robotics (real time if possible)
6 How does it work? Tracking as been studied in computer vision and robotics for several decades. A huge variety of algorithms has been reported. We review only the most relevant literature. We concentrate on: 1. Motion estimation (a) Kalman filter (b) Particle filter (c) Examples
7 2. Matching problem (a) Template based approaches (b) Feature based approaches (c) Contour based approaches (d) Examples
8 PART 1  Motion estimation To define the problem of tracking, consider the evolution of the state sequence of a target, given by is a possible nonlinear function of the state is a process noise sequence and are dimensions of the state state and process noise vectors respectively
9 The objective of tracking is to recursively estimate from measurements where: is a possibly nonlinear function is a process noise sequence andare dimensions of the measurement and measurement noise vector, respectively. based on the set of all available mea up to time In particular, we seek filtered estimates of surements
10 From a Bayesian perspective, the tracking problem is to recursively calculate some degree of belief in the state, taking different values, given the data. up to time at time It requires to construct the pdf. It is assumed that the initial pdf is available. may be obtained recur With these assumptions, the pdf sively in two stages : prediction and update.
11 Prediction stage Suppose the required pdf is is available at time The prediction stage involves using the system model to obtain the prior pdf of the state via the ChapmanKolmogorov equation : It is assumed that the evolution of the state sequence describes a Markov process of order one; in this case:. The probabilistic model of state evolution is known.
12 becomes available, and this may Update At time step, a measurement be used to update the prior via Bayes s rules: where the normalizing constant the matching algorithm provides.
13 This recursive propagation of the posterior density is only a conceptual solution in that in general it cannot be determined analytically. Solutions do exist in a restrictive set of cases, including the Kalman filter and grid based filters. When the analytical solution is intractable, extended Kalman filter, approximate grid based filters and particle filters approximate the optimal Bayesian solution.
14 Kalman Filter The Kalman filter assumes that the posterior density at every time step is Gaussian and hence parametrised by a mean and a covariance. If Gaussian is Gaussian, it can be proved that is also are drawn from Gaussian distributions of known parameters and is known and is a linear function of and is a known linear function of and
15 and are known matrices defining the linear functions. The co and are respectively and variance of consider the case when tically independent.. Here we and have zero means and are statis
16 The Kalman algorithm can be viewed as the following recursive relationship: where
17 and covari and where ance and: is a Gaussian density with argument mean are the covariance of the innovation term respectively. and the Kalman gain, This is the optimal solution to the tracking problem  if the highly restrictive assumptions hold.
18 Grid Based Methods if the state space is dis Provide optimal recursion of the filtered density, crete and consists of a finite number of state. Suppose the state space at time consists of discrete states let the conditional probability of that state, given measure be denoted by is that For each state ments up to time. Then the posterior pdf at k1 can be written as where is the Dirac delta measure.
19 using previous equation, the prediction and update equations are, respectively: where:
20 SubOptimal Methods In many situations, the assumptions made above do not hold. Approximations are necessary Extended Kalman filter: based on the approximation that is approximated by a Gaussian and where now are nonlinear functions, that are linearized using the first term in a Taylor expansion. and Approximate gridbased methods: if now the state is continuous, but can be decomposed into cells, then a grisbased method can be used to approximate the posterior density. Particle filters: the key idea is to represent the posterior density function by a set of random samples with associated weights and to compute estimates based on these samples and weights.
21 Particle Filters Let denotes a Random Measure that characterises the posterior pdf, where is a set of support points with associated weights. The weights are normalised such that Then the posterior density at can be approximated as The weight are chosen according to the principle of importance sampling.
22 Importance Sampling is a probability density from which it is difficult to draw sam can be evaluated (and so up to proportionality). Suppose ples, but for which Let be samples that are easily generated from a proposal, call an importance density. A weighted approximation to the density is given by where is the normalized weight of the ith particle.
23 Sequential case: one could have samples constituting an approximation to, and want to constitute an approximation to with a new set of samples. If the importance density is chosen to factorise such that and if then the importance density becomes only dependent on and In this scenarios, only need to be stored, and so one can discard the path and history observations,.
24 The modified weight is then and the posterior filtered density It can be shown that as posterior density the approximation approaches the true can be approximated as
25 Good choice of importance density The optimal importance density function to be. But sampling from is generally untractable. has been shown It is convenient  and very common  to chose the importance density to be the prior This yields finally: This choice is crucial.
26 Degeneracy and Resampling Degeneracy phenomenon is a common problem with particle filters: after a few iterations, all but one particles will have a negligible weight. The basic idea of resampling is to eliminate particles which have small weights and to concentrate on particle with large weights. The resampling step involves generating a new set by resampling (with replacement) times from an approximate discrete representation of given by: After the resampling, the weight are now reset to Systematic resampling is the generally preferred scheme

29 PART 2  Data association Contributions can be structured depending on the kind of informations that are detected and associated in the images. Window tracking / template matching : the target is just a small image window, Feature tracking: targets are image elements with specific properties, called image features that are detectable parts of images. Feature tracking takes place by first locating features in two subsequent frames then matching each feature together of with a model.
30 local features: cover a limited area of an image (edges, corner points...) extended features: large part of the image (contour of basic shapes...) Planar rigid shapes : appearances of planar rigid shapes in motion are used to estimate the motion. Solid rigid 3D objects: the logical next step to the above with rigid 3D object. Deformable contours: the idea of projecting a CAD like model to predict the full target evolution often failed. Deformable regions are more flexible.
31 Feature tracking The main advantage is their greater robustness to clutter The price is more complex matching algorithm, as local features generally don t have discriminant attributes. Best studied features are contours, because they are meaningful features in structured scenes. Trackers can incorporate motion models and shape deformations constraining the possible deformations. very common approach: predict the state (position/orientation of the camera/objects) and use this prediction to predict the position of the feature in the image, find the correspondences between image and model feature in order to update the state (estimation). A very large number of papers in this area, (Magnus Anderson, Tracking Methods in computer vision, PHD, CVAP, KTH). The few following examples are taken as illustrations.

38 Window tracking The simplest target possible. Can be tracked by correlationlike correspondence method [E. Trucco and A. Verri, Introductory techniques for 3D computer vision, Prentice Hall, 1998] Standard method explore all possible candidate windows within a given search region in the next frame and pick up the one optimising an image similarity metric. Typical metrics include SSD (sum of square difference) SAD (sum of absolute differences) or correlation The window tracked is assume either translating, or subject to linear or homographic deformations. As windows are unprocessed subimage, these techniques can be applied at any image position, and can be used in stereo systems to produce dense surface reconstruction.
39 Lucas  Kanade tracker The major drawback of correlation like techniques is their computational cost With small interframe displacements, a window can be tracked by optimizing some matching criterion.

40 Basic ideas : Taylor expansion (first order approximation) with by writing the tracking consists in finding the minimum of
41 At the end, we obtain the well known equation where and can be obtained by using this iterative procedure:

Let the set at time. is a vector of the brightness values of the target region be the set of N image locations which define a target region. We refer to initial time ( ). as the reference template.

At

49 The straightforward computation of requires the computation of the image gradient with respect to the component of vector. Therefore depends on timevarying quantities and has to be completely recomputed at each new iteration. This is a computationally expensive procedure. Fortunately, it is possible to express as a function of the image gradient of the reference image, allowing to obtain with only few online computations [?]. Equation (5) involves the computation of the difference in intensity. It is possible to relate to the reference template given in the first image. If we assume that the pattern is correctly localized after the correction of the motion parameter, the image consistency assumption gives, leading to the relation
50 In this case, the previous equation links the difference between the template in the current region and the target template with a displacement aligning the region on the target. With these notations, the tracking consists in evaluating updating and consequently obtaining according to the equation:, and finally.

The previous can be written:

Once the region is moved, the vector is computed. This disturbance procedure is repeated with times,. we collect Finally and couples. It is then possible to obtain a matrix such that: is minimal.
