Network video surveillance has been a popular security application for many years. Target tracking in a cluttered environment remains one of the challenging problems of video surveillance. The task of target tracking is a key component of video surveillance and monitoring systems. It provides input to high-level processing such as recognition, access control or re-identification or is used to initialize the analysis and classification of human activities. Intelligent and automated security surveillance systems have become an active research area in recent time due to an increasing demand for such systems in public areas such as airports, underground stations and mass events.
