We propose a similarity measure based on a spatial-color mixture of Gaussians (SMOG) appearance model for particle filters. This improves on the popular similarity measure based on color histograms because it considers not only the colors in a region but also the spatial layout of the colors. Hence, the SMOG-based similarity measure is more discriminative. To efficiently compute the parameters for SMOG, we propose a new technique with which the computational time is greatly reduced. We also extend our method by integrating multiple cues to increase the reliability and robustness. Experiments show that our method can successfully track objects in many difficult situations.
