We present a method for object tracking over time sequence imagery. The image plane is represented with a 4-connected planar graph where vertices are associated with pixels. On each image, the outer contour of the object is localized by finding the optimal cycle in the graph such that a cost function based on temporal, appearance and shape priors is minimized. Our contribution is the particle filtering-based framework to integrate the shape cue with the temporal and appearance cues. We demonstrate that incorporating the shape prior yields promising performance improvement over temporal and appearance priors on various object tracking scenarios.
