High-performance template tracking

by R. Cabido, A.S. Montemayor, J.J. Pantrigo, M. Martínez-Zarzuela, B.R. Payne
Abstract:
Tracking systems are important in computer vision, with applications in video surveillance, human computer interfaces (HCI), etc. Consumer graphics processing units (GPUs) have experienced an extraordinary evolution in both computing performance and programmability, leading to a greater use of the GPU for non-rendering applications, such as image processing and computer vision tasks. In this work we show an effective particle filtering implementation for real-time template tracking based on the use of a graphics card as a streaming architecture in a translation-rotation-scale model.
