Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) is one of the algorithms that have been widely implemented in tracking vehicle for traffic surveillance purposes. The sampling efficiency of the algorithm is essential to determine the vehicle position accurately. However, the sample size of the algorithm is still remaining an issue as non-optimal sample size will defect the tracking accuracy, especially when the moving vehicle is overlapped. Adaptive sample size of MCMC has been implemented using CUSUM Path Plot and Variance Ratio algorithms to perform vehicle tracking. CUSUM Path Plot determines the samples convergence rate by calculating the hairiness of the sample size whereas Variance Ratio method computes two sets of MCMC to determine the samples steady state. This paper proposes the fusion of CUSUM-Variance ratio algorithm to enhance the tracking efficiency. Experimental results shows that the CUSUM-Variance Ratio method have a better performance in tracking the overlapping vehicle with higher accuracy and more optimal sample size compared to the standalone CUSUM Path Plot and Variance Ratio approaches.
