Abstract : In a mobile robot, visual tracking, like other visual behaviors, takes place in a context that includes aspects of the task, the object being tracked, and the background. In this work, prior knowledge of those task and target characteristics that either enable or hinder different real-time image-tracking algorithms, together with run-time evaluation of the robot's environment, are used to select an algorithm appropriate to the context.
