Many emerging applications require tracking targets in video. Most existing visual tracking methods do not work well when the target is motion-blurred (especially due to fast motion), because the imperfectness of the target's appearances invalidates the image matching model (or the measurement model) in tracking. This paper presents a novel method to track motion-blurred targets by taking advantage of the blurs without performing image restoration. Unlike the global blur induced by camera motion, this paper is concerned with the local blurs that are due to target's motion. This is a challenging task because the blurs need to be identified blindly. The proposed method addresses this difficulty by integrating signal processing and statistical learning techniques. The estimated blurs are used to reduce the search range by providing strong motion predictions and to localize the best match accurately by modifying the measurement models.
