Recently, an emerging class of methods, namely tracking by detection, achieved quite promising results on challenging tracking data sets. These techniques train a classifier in an online manner to separate the object from its background. These methods only take input location of the object and a random feature pool; then, a classifier bootstraps itself by using the current tracker state and extracted positive and negative samples. Following these approaches, a novel tracking system is proposed. A feature selection method is introduced to increase the discriminative power of the classifier. During tracking, a Hidden Markov Model (HMM) is utilized to filter the features that improve the performance. Moreover, a state of the proposed HMM is allocated to handle occlusions. The proposed tracker is tested on publicly available challenging video sequences and superior tracking results are achieved in real-time.

This paper presents a vegetation detection application with semi-supervised target detection using hyperspectral unmixing and segmentation algorithms. The method firstly compares the known target spectral signature from a generic source such as a spectral library with each pixel of hyperspectral data cube employing Spectral Angle Mapper (SAM) algorithm. The pixel(s) with the best match are assumed to be the most likely target vegetation locations. The regions around these potential target locations are furt...
On the Solution of Data Association Problem Using Rollout Algorithms
Ozgen, Selim; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Orguner, Umut (2016-07-08)
The quality and precision of tracking maneuvering targets under heavy clutter is highly dependent on both the data association and the state estimation algorithms. In this study, measurement-to-track association problem for a single target when P-D = 1 is discussed. The problem considers the batch set of measurements in a time interval. An approximate stochastic optimization algorithm for data association is presented. To reduce the computational load, the rollout algorithm is utilized. The algorithm is app...
Fully-Automatic Target Detection and Tracking for Real-Time, Airborne Imaging Applications
Alkanat, Tunc; Tunali, Emre; Oz, Sinan (2015-03-14)
In this study, an efficient, robust algorithm for automatic target detection and tracking is introduced. Procedure starts with a detection phase. Proposed method uses two alternatives for the detection phase, namely maximally stable extremal regions detector and Canny edge detector. After detection, regions of interest are evaluated and eliminated according to their compactness and effective saliency. The detection process is repeated for a predetermined number of pyramid levels where each level processes a...
Occlusion-aware 3-D multiple object tracking for visual surveillance
Topçu, Osman; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Ercan, Ali Özer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
This thesis work presents an occlusion-aware particle filter framework for online tracking of multiple people with observations from multiple cameras with overlapping fields of view for surveillance applications. Surveillance problem involves inferring motives of people from their actions, deduced from their trajectories. Visual tracking is required to obtain these trajectories and it is a challenging problem due to motion model variations, size and illumination changes and especially occlusions between mov...
Outlier Detection and Quasi-periodicity Optimization Algorithm: Frequency Domain Based Outlier Detection (FOD)
Erkuş, Ekin Can; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (2020-01-01)
Outlier detection is one of the main challenges in the pre-processing stage of data analyses. In this study, we suggest a new non-parametric outlier detection technique which is based on the frequency-domain and Fourier Transform definitions and call it as the frequency-domain based outlier detection (FOD). From simulation results under various distributions and real data applications, we observe that our proposal approach is capable of detecting quasi-periodic outliers in time series data more successfully...
