Particle Filter and Mean Shift tracking
Particle filter is the name given to the sample-based (i.e., Montecarlo) approximation of the Bayes recursion. The algorithm is a popular substitute for the Kalman filter in presence of non-Gaussianity of the noise statistics and non-linearity of the relationships [...]
My book on video tracking, co-authored by Professor Andrea Cavallaro is finally out. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental aspects of algorithm and application development for the video tracking task.
More information about the book and video tracking in general is available at www.videotracking.org.
