An appearance-based approach to track an object that may undergo appearance change is proposed. Unlike recent methods that store a detailed representation of object's appearance, this method allows an appearance feature with a reduced dimension to be used. Through the use of a sparse Bayesian classifier, high classification and detection accuracy can be maintained even if a reduced feature vector is used. In addition, the classifier allows online-training which enables online-updating of the original classification model and provides better adaptability. Experiments show that the method can be used to track targets undergo appearance change due to the change in view-point, facial expression and lighting direction.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
