This paper presents an unsupervised tracking algorithm with a low computational cost using the Temporal Doubly Stochastic Dirichlet Process (TDSDP) mixture model, and we demonstrate it in tracking fish in low quality videos for water quality assurance. The object is captured in the temporal domain with a global dependency prior instead of the Markov assumption, making it particularly suitable for long-term tracking. Furthermore, the TDSDP mixture model can calculate the number of object trajectories automatically. We describe how to construct this mixture model from thinning multiple Dirichlet Process Mixtures (DPMs) with conjugate priors, followed by details of the algorithm for object tracking. Experiments on a fish dataset illustrate that the TDSDP can track multiple fish, and performs well even when they are overlapping in the view. Further experiments also suggest that TDSDP can be applied to other tracking problems.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
