© 2017 IEEE. Robust visual tracking for outdoor vehicle is still a challenging problem due to large appearance variations caused by illumination variation, occlusion and scale variation, etc. In this paper, a deep-learning-based approach for robust outdoor vehicle tracking is proposed. Firstly, a stacked denoising auto-encoder is pre-trained to learn the feature representation way of images. Then, a k-sparse constraint is added to the stacked denoising auto-encoder and the encoder of k-sparse stacked denoising auto-encoder (kSSDAE) is connected with a classification layer to construct a classification neural network. After fine-tuning, the classification neural network is applied to online tracking under particle filter framework. Extensive tracking experiments are conducted on a challenging single object online tracking evaluation platform benchmark to verify the effectiveness of our tracker. Experiments show that our tracker outperforms most state-of-the-art trackers.
