Abstract: We derive a probabilistic framework for robust, real-time, visual tracking of previously unseen objects from a moving camera. The tracking problem is handled using a bag-of-pixels representation and comprises a rigid registration between frames, a segmentation and online appearance learning. The registration compensates for rigid motion, segmentation models any residual shape deformation and the online appearance learning provides continual refinement of both the object and background appearance models. The key to the success of our method is the use of pixel-wise posteriors, as opposed to likelihoods. We demonstrate the superior performance of our tracker by comparing cost function statistics against those commonly used in the visual tracking literature. Our comparison method provides a way of summarising tracking performance using lots of data from a variety of different sequences.
