In this paper two new feature tracking algorithms are proposed. In the first algorithm, a perspective camera model is used. Making use of the projective invariant of Barrett, and assuming the image feature points corresponding to 8 general points in space are tracked by a conventional method in the image sequence, the other feature points in the sequence can be tracked using a Hough technique. Correspondence between two reference images as required by the original Barrett's invariant is not necessary. In the second algorithm, an affine camera model is assumed and the image feature points corresponding to 4 non-coplanar points in space are assumed tracked in the image sequence using a conventional method. These image points form the basis of affine coordinates in each image. After the correspondence of a fifth point is established between the first two images, the affine coordinates of all image points in the first images existence can be computed. As far as we know this is the only algorithm which can transfer a point knowing only a single image. Experiments showed that both algorithms gave highly accurate tracking results
