Visual tracking has an important place among computer vision applications. Visual tracking with particle filters is a well-known methodology. The performance of particle filters is dependent on efficient sampling of the state space, which in turn, is dependent on number of particles. In this paper, Rao-Blackwell technique is applied to particle filters to improve sampling efficiency. Both algorithms are applied to people tracking problem. Under the same circumstances, the resulting algorithm is demonstrated to perform better than the original algorithm via experiments on the PETS2009 benchmark dataset.

Visual object detection and tracking using local convolutional context features and recurrent neural networks
Kaya, Emre Can; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Visual object detection and tracking are two major problems in computer vision which have important real-life application areas. During the last decade, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have received significant attention and outperformed methods that rely on handcrafted representations in both detection and tracking. On the other hand, Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are commonly preferred for modeling sequential data such as video sequences. A novel convolutional context feature extension is introduc...
Efficient detection and tracking of salient regions for visual processing on mobile platforms
Serhat, Gülhan; Saranlı, Afşar; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Visual Attention is an interesting concept that constantly widens its application areas in the field of image processing and computer vision. The main idea of visual attention is to find the locations on the image that are visually attractive. In this thesis, the visually attractive regions are extracted and tracked in video sequences coming from the vision systems of mobile platforms. First, the salient regions are extracted in each frame and a feature vector is constructed for each one. Then Scale Invaria...
Comparison of feature sets using multimedia translation
Duygulu, P; Ozcanli, OC; Papernick, N (2003-01-01)
Feature selection is very important for many computer vision applications. However, it is hard to find a good measure for the comparison. In this study, feature sets are compared using the translation model of object recognition which is motivated by the availablity of large annotated data sets. Image regions are linked to words using a model which is inspired by machine translation. Word prediction performance is used to evaluate large numbers of images.
Automated learning rate search using batch-level cross-validation
Kabakcı, Duygu; Akbaş, Emre; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
Deep convolutional neural networks are being widely used in computer vision tasks, such as object recognition and detection, image segmentation and face recognition, with a variety of architectures. Deep learning researchers and practitioners have accumulated a significant amount of experience on training a wide variety of architectures on various datasets. However, given a specific network model and a dataset, obtaining the best model (i.e. the model giving the smallest test set error) while keeping the tr...
Visual tracking with motion estimation and adaptive target appearance model embedded in particle filtering
Başer, Erkan; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis we study Particle Filter for visual tracking applications. The sequential Monte Carlo methods or Particle Filter provides approximate solutions when the tracking problem involves non-linear and/or non-Gaussian state space models. Also in this study, in order to make the visual tracker robust against change in target appearance and unexpected target motion, an adaptive target appearance model and a first order motion estimator are embedded in particle filtering. Additionally, since pixels that...
