Paper Title:
Research on Underwater Target Tracking Based on Contour Detection
  Abstract

The traditional centroid tracking method over-relies on the accuracy of segment, which easily lead to loss of underwater moving target. This paper presents an object tracking method based on circular contour extraction, combining region feature and contour feature. Through the correction to circle features, the problem of multiple solutions causing by Hough transform circle detection is avoided. A new motion prediction model is constructed to make up the deficiency that three-order motion prediction model has disadvantage of high dimension and large calculation. The predicted position of object centroid is updated and corrected by circle contour, forming prediction-measurement-updating closed-loop target tracking system. To reduce system processing time, on the premise of the tracking accuracy, a dynamic detection method based on target state prediction model is proposed. The results of contour extraction and underwater moving target experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
