MULTIPLE VEHICLE TRACKING USING GABOR FILTER BANK PREDICTOR

Abstract

This paper presents a time-varying Gabor filter bank predictor for use with vehicle tracking via surveillance video. A frame-based 2D Gabor-filter bank is selected as a primary detector for any changes in a given video frame sequence. Detected changes are localized in each frame by fitting a bounding box on the silhouette of the vehicle in the region of interest (ROI). Arbitrary motion of each vehicle is fed to a non-linear directional predictor in the time axis for estimating the location of the tracked vehicle in the next frame of the video sequence. Real-time traffic-video experimentation dictates that the cone Gabor filter structure is able to tune itself into a selected target and trace it accordingly. This property is highly desirable in the fast and accurate moving vehicle or target tracking purposes in range and intensity driven sensing.
