Robust and real-time object tracking of any objects is a challenging task. Particle filtering has been proven very successful for non-gaussian and non-linear estimation problems. This paper describes a new approach to improve the moving object tracking system with particle filter using shape similarity. The shape similarity between a template and estimated regions in the video sequences can be measured by their normalized cross-correlation of distance transformation. Our observation model of the particle filter is based on shape from distance transformed (DT) edge features. Template is created instantly by selecting any object in a video scene and updated in every frame. Experimental results have been offered to show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
