Video Vehicle Tracking Based on Improved Mean-Shift Algorithm
An improved Mean-Shift-based Video vehicle tracking algorithm was proposed and which can improve the real-time and accuracy of the vehicle detection technology in the application. First, it eliminates the disturbance from unrelated background by mathematical morphology operation between a traffic image and the mask of fixed background area .Then the image sequences are simulated by absolute difference of adaptive threshold for detecting latent target. At last, clusters video frames with similar characteristics which are regarded of the invariant moments vectors by Mean Shift clustering algorithm. Experimental results shown that the improved algorithm has advantages of reducing king region of vehicle matching and vehicle complete occlusion.
