Voting-Based Simultaneous Tracking of
Multiple Video Objects

Abstract--This paper proposes an automatic object tracking
method based on both object segmentation and motion estimation
for real-time content-oriented video applications. The method
focuses on the issues of speed of execution and reliability in the
presence of noise, coding artifacts, shadows, occlusion, and object
split.
Objects are tracked based on the similarity of their features
in successive frames. This is done in three steps: feature extrac-
tion, object matching, and feature monitoring. In the first step,
objects are segmented and their spatial and temporal features are
computed. In the second step, using a nonlinear two-stage voting
strategy, each object of the previous frame is matched with an
object of the current frame creating a unique correspondence. In
the third step, object changes, such objects occlusion or split, are
monitored and object features are corrected. These new features
are then used to update results of previous steps creating module
