Preprint
Transformer-based visual object tracking has been utilized extensively. However, the Transformer structure is lack of enough inductive bias. In addition, only focusing on encoding the global feature does harm to modeling local details, which restricts the capability of tracking in aerial robots. Specifically, with local-modeling to global-search me...
Preprint
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based visual object tracking has enabled a wide range of applications and attracted increasing attention in the field of remote sensing because of its versatility and effectiveness. As a new force in the revolutionary trend of deep learning, Siamese networks shine in visual object tracking with their promising balance...
Preprint
We are interested in anticipating as early as possible the target location of a person's object manipulation action in a 3D workspace from egocentric vision. It is important in fields like human-robot collaboration, but has not yet received enough attention from vision and learning communities. To stimulate more research on this challenging egocent...
Preprint
Temporal contexts among consecutive frames are far from been fully utilized in existing visual trackers. In this work, we present TCTrack, a comprehensive framework to fully exploit temporal contexts for aerial tracking. The temporal contexts are incorporated at \textbf{two levels}: the extraction of \textbf{features} and the refinement of \textbf{...
Preprint
Visual tracking is adopted to extensive unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-related applications, which leads to a highly demanding requirement on the robustness of UAV trackers. However, adding imperceptible perturbations can easily fool the tracker and cause tracking failures. This risk is often overlooked and rarely researched at present. Therefore, t...

Full-text available
Most existing Siamese-based tracking methods execute the classification and regression of the target object based on the similarity maps. However, they either employ a single map from the last convolutional layer which degrades the localization accuracy in complex scenarios or separately use multiple maps for decision making, introducing intractabl...
Preprint
Recent years have witnessed the fast evolution and promising performance of the convolutional neural network (CNN)-based trackers, which aim at imitating biological visual systems. However, current CNN-based trackers can hardly generalize well to low-light scenes that are commonly lacked in the existing training set. In indistinguishable night scen...
Article
Full-text available
Object tracking approaches based on the Siamese network have demonstrated their huge potential in the remote sensing field recently. Nevertheless, due to the limited computing resource of aerial platforms and special challenges in aerial tracking, most existing Siamese-based methods can hardly meet the real-time and state-of-the-art performance sim...
Preprint
Full-text available
Recently, the Siamese-based method has stood out from multitudinous tracking methods owing to its state-of-the-art (SOTA) performance. Nevertheless, due to various special challenges in UAV tracking, \textit{e.g.}, severe occlusion, and fast motion, most existing Siamese-based trackers hardly combine superior performance with high efficiency. To th...
Preprint
In the domain of visual tracking, most deep learning-based trackers highlight the accuracy but casting aside efficiency, thereby impeding their real-world deployment on mobile platforms like the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). In this work, a novel two-stage siamese network-based method is proposed for aerial tracking, \textit{i.e.}, stage-1 for hig...
