Multi-Correlation Filters With Triangle-Structure Constraints for Object Tracking

Correlation filters (CFs) have been extensively used in tracking tasks due to their high efficiency although most of them regard the tracked target as a whole and are minimally effective in handling partial occlusion. In this study, we incorporate a part-based strategy into the framework of CFs and propose a novel multipart correlation tracker with triangle-structure constraints. Specifically, we train multiple CFs for the global object and local parts, which are then jointly applied to obtain the correlation response of any candidate during tracking. The tracker is robust in handling partial occlusion because of the use of part-based representation. The remaining global representation can contribute reliable cues in cases wherein several local filters drift away in a specific scene. We further propose a triangle-structure model to measure the structural similarity of candidates. The model employs multiple triangles to determine the spatial relationship among parts and helps constrain the location of the target. Moreover, we introduce an effective part selection scheme based on energy and integrity, which is generally applicable to part-tracking models. Extensive experiments on two public benchmarks demonstrate the superiority of the proposed method over the state-of-the-art approaches.
