Abstract

The traditional color-based mean shift tracking algorithm is a popular method in colored object tracking due to its simple and efficient procedure, however, its constant tracking bandwidth makes it unsuitable for objects that have variable size during tracking. In this paper, we propose Enhanced Mean Shift Tracker (EMST) which has adaptive bandwidth. Our proposed method solves the problems of the original algorithms related to accuracy and rigid bandwidth. The experimental results show that the new method is feasible, robust and has a good speed in comparison with other algorithms.
