The Template Update Problem
June 2004 (vol. 26 no. 6)
pp. 810-815

Abstract—Template tracking dates back to the 1981 Lucas-Kanade algorithm. One question that has received very little attention, however, is how to update the template so that it remains a good model of the tracked object. We propose a template update algorithm that avoids the "drifting” inherent in the naive algorithm.
