Real-time Online Multi-Object Tracking in Compressed Domain

5 Apr 2022  ·  Qiankun Liu, Bin Liu, Yue Wu, Weihai Li, Nenghai Yu ·

Recent online Multi-Object Tracking (MOT) methods have achieved desirable tracking performance. However, the tracking speed of most existing methods is rather slow. Inspired from the fact that the adjacent frames are highly relevant and redundant, we divide the frames into key and non-key frames respectively and track objects in the compressed domain. For the key frames, the RGB images are restored for detection and data association. To make data association more reliable, an appearance Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) which can be jointly trained with the detector is proposed. For the non-key frames, the objects are directly propagated by a tracking CNN based on the motion information provided in the compressed domain. Compared with the state-of-the-art online MOT methods,our tracker is about 6x faster while maintaining a comparable tracking performance.
