Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The UAV person tracking task for this evaluation was particularly difficult because of large, complicated, and low-quality videos, with only small images of people. We found that our best results were obtained using a combination of intensity thresholding (for IR imagery), motion compensation, interest-point detection and correspondence, and pattern classification. This can be considered a preliminary exploration into an extremely challenging problem.
