Laws, K. I. (1988). Classification-based tracking of objects and materials. SRI INTERNATIONAL MENLO PARK CA ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CENTER.
SRI’s KNIFE image analysis system can be used for tracking objects and material classes from one image to another. Variations on this theme are the initial acquisition of target instances from database signatures and the subsequent acquisition of additional instances in an image once a few objects have been labeled. Classification-based tracking is facilitated by improved color and texture-energy transforms. KNIFE’s labeling and partitioning methods can be used with complex targets, and are relatively unaffected by occlusions and changes in object appearance during tracking.
