Fast Spatially Regularized Correlation Filter Tracker
International Electrotechnical and Computer Science Conference (ERK), 2018
Discriminative correlation filters (DCF) have attracted significant attention of the tracking community. Standard formulation of the DCF affords a closed form solution, but is not robust and constrained to learning and detection using a relatively small search region. Spatial regularization was proposed to address learning from larger regions. But this prohibits a closed form solution and leads to an iterative optimization with significant computational load, resulting in slow model learning and tracking. We propose to reformulate the spatially regularized filter cost function such that it offers an efficient optimization. This significantly speeds up the tracker (approximately 14 times) and results in real-time tracking at the same or better accuracy.
