A Ranking Based Attention Approach for Visual Tracking


Correlation filters (CF) combined with pre-trained convolutional neural network (CNN) feature extractors have shown an admirable accuracy and speed in visual object tracking. However, existing CNN-CF based methods still suffer from the background interference and boundary effects, even when a cosine window is introduced. This paper proposes a ranking based or guided attention approach which can reduce background interference with only forward propagation. This ranking stores several convolution kernels and scores them. Subsequently, a convolutional Long Short Time Memory network (ConvLSTM) is used to update this ranking, which makes it more robust to the variation and occlusion. Moreover, a part-based multi-channel convolutional tracker is proposed to obtain the final response map. Our extensive experiments on established benchmark datasets show comparable performance against contemporary tracking approaches.
