Abstract

This paper proposes a novel method to deal with the target tracking problem. Specifically, the information of observation model, dynamic model, exclusion model, trajectory persistence model and trajectory correction model are first used to construct objective tracking functions; then, the gradient descent method is adopted to achieve an approximate minimum of the constructed objective functions to obtain the number and status of tracking targets; finally, continuous energy minimization based intelligent extrapolation method is utilized to obtain final continuous and smooth trajectories.

Keywords
