Hierarchical Spatial-aware Siamese Network for Thermal Infrared Object Tracking (HSSNet) Alt text

Abstract

We propose a thermal infrared (TIR) tracker via a Hierarchical Spatial-aware Siamese convolutional neural network (CNN), named HSSNet. To obtain both spatial and semantic features of the TIR object, we design a Siamese CNN coalescing the multiple hierarchical convolutional layers. Then, we propose a spatial-aware network to enhance the discriminative ability of the coalesced hierarchical feature. Subsequently, we train this network end to end on a large visible video detection dataset to learn the similarity between paired objects before we transfer the network into the TIR domain. Next, this pre-trained Siamese network is used to evaluate the similarity between the target template and target candidates. Finally, we locate the most similar one as the tracked target.
