Tracking moving objects in a video is of critical importance in various fields such as traffic monitoring, video surveillance, human motion capture, etc. However, tracking multiple objects in a video is very challenging. To meet that, authors proposed a new adaptive technique for object localization through local and global appearance of target. Local layer concentrates on the target's geometric deformation, i.e. the target structure is updated through adding and removing the local patches. The deformation information is constrained through the global layer, which concentrates on the shape, appearance, and color. The deformation information is passed from local to global layer through particle filter initialization and Hidden Markov Model (HMM).
