Background subtraction, binary morphology, and connected components analysis are the first processing steps in many vision-based tracking applications. Although background subtraction has been the subject of much research, it is typically treated as a stand-alone process, dissociated from the subsequent phases of object recognition and tracking. This paper presents a method for decreasing computational cost in visual tracking systems by using track state estimates to direct and constrain image segmentation via background subtraction and connected components analysis. We also present a multiple target tracking application that uses the technique to achieve a large reduction in computation costs.
