Multi-Object Tracking Models

FairMOT is a model for multi-object tracking which consists of two homogeneous branches to predict pixel-wise objectness scores and re-ID features. The achieved fairness between the tasks is used to achieve high levels of detection and tracking accuracy. The detection branch is implemented in an anchor-free style which estimates object centers and sizes represented as position-aware measurement maps. Similarly, the re-ID branch estimates a re-ID feature for each pixel to characterize the object centered at the pixel. Note that the two branches are completely homogeneous which essentially differs from the previous methods which perform detection and re-ID in a cascaded style. It is also worth noting that FairMOT operates on high-resolution feature maps of strides four while the previous anchor-based methods operate on feature maps of stride 32. The elimination of anchors as well as the use of high-resolution feature maps better aligns re-ID features to object centers which significantly improves the tracking accuracy.
