We propose a color-based tracking framework that infers alternately an object's configuration and good color features via particle filtering. The tracker adaptively selects discriminative color features that well distinguish foregrounds from backgrounds. The effectiveness of a feature is weighted by the Kullback-Leibler observation model, which measures dissimilarities between the color histograms of foregrounds and backgrounds. Experimental results show that the probabilistic tracker with adaptive feature selection is resilient to lighting changes and background distractions.
