Deep Directional Network for Object Tracking
AbstractExisting object trackers are mostly based on correlation filtering and neural network frameworks. Correlation filtering is fast but has poor accuracy. Although a neural network can achieve high precision, a large amount of computation increases the tracking time. To address this problem, we utilize a convolutional neural network (CNN) to learn object direction. We propose a target direction classification network based on CNNs that has a directional shortcut to the tracking target, unlike the particle filter that randomly finds the target. Our network uses an end-to-end approach to determine scale variation that has good robustness to scale variation sequences. In the pretraining stage, the Visual Object Tracking Challenges (VOT) dataset is used to train the network for learning positive and negative sample classification and direction classification. In the online tracking stage, the sliding window operation is performed by using the obtained directional information to determine the exact position of the object. The network only calculates a single sample, which guarantees a low computational burden. The positive and negative sample redetection strategies can successfully ensure that the samples are not lost. The one-pass evaluation (OPE) evaluation results of the object tracking benchmark (OTB) demonstrate that the algorithm is very robust and is also faster than several deep trackers. View Full-Text
