    Particle Filter on GPUs for Real-Time Tracking



    Efficient object tracking is required by many Computer Vision application areas like surveillance or robotics. It deals with statespace variables estimation of interesting features in image sequences and their future prediction. Probabilistic algorithms has been widely applied to tracking. These methods take advantage of knowledge about previous states of the system reducing the computational cost of an exhaustive search over the whole image.
