Previously, we looked at one of the simplest trackers. In this section, we will use richer features from CNNs to perform tracking. Deep SORT is a recent algorithm for tracking that extends Simple Online and Real-time Tracking and has shown remarkable results in the Multiple Object Tracking (MOT) problem.
In the problem setting of MOT, each frame has more than one object to track. A generic method to solve this has two steps:
- Detection: First, all the objects are detected in the frame. There can be single or multiple detections.
- Association: Once we have detections for the frame, a matching is performed for similar detections with respect to the previous frame. The matched frames are followed through the sequence to get the ...
