Visual tracking aims to match objects of interest in consecutive video frames. This paper proposes a novel and robust algorithm to address the problem of object tracking. To this end, we investigate the fusion of state-of-the-art image segmentation hierarchies and graph matching. More specifically, (i) we represent the object to be tracked using a hierarchy of regions, each of which is described with a combined feature set of SIFT descriptors and color histograms; (ii) we formulate the tracking process as a graph matching problem, which is solved by minimizing an energy function incorporating appearance and geometry contexts; and (iii) more importantly, an effective graph updating mechanism is proposed to adapt to the object changes over time for ensuring the tracking robustness. Experiments are carried out on several challenging sequences and results show that our method performs well in terms of object tracking, even in the presence of variations of scale and illumination, moving camera, occlusion, and background clutter.
