Abstract : A target tracking algorithm is described that is applicable to real-time video trackers in noisy and multiple target backgrounds. The algorithm consists of fast and reliable methods for picture decomposition, initial target acquisition, multiple target tracker, and structural recognition. The algorithm can be implemented to use the speed of parallel processing techniques.
