Abstract

In this paper, the problem of missing vehicles halfway in previous approach of vehicle tracking based on motion vector is studied, and a vehicle tracking algorithm based on pixel level motion vector is proposed. In the proposed algorithm, blocks of vehicles are shifted by pixel level motion vector which is acquired directly by block matching method, and overlapping between blocks contained in a single vehicle is allowed. By the experiments, the proposed algorithm was proved to be very successful. It can track vehicles farther than block level motion vector based approach.
