Benchmark for tracking in thermal imagery published

Around the world, algorithms are developed in order to track objects in thermal as well as in visual video. However, there has been no common way of evaluating tracking methods in thermal imagery, which makes it difficult to compare algorithms from different researchers and developers. Thus, P5 have developed a reference data set, LTIR, with thermal image sequences from various sources as well as a methodology for benchmarking tracking methods.  Amanda Berg from  P5 partner Termisk Systemteknik presented a scientific article describing the benchmark has been published at the AVSS conference (12th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video- and Signal-based Surveillance) in Karlsruhe.
