Visual tracking is an important task in computer vision. Despite many researches have been done in this area, some problems remain. One of the problems is drifting. To handle the problem, a new appearance model update method based on a forward filtering backward smoothing particle filter is proposed in this paper. A smoothing of previous appearance model is performed by exploiting information of current frame instead of updating instantly in traditional tracking methods. It has been shown that smoothing based on future observations makes previous and current predictions more accurate, thus the appearance model update by our approach is more accurate. And at the same time, online tracking is achieved compared with some previous work in which the smoothing is done in an offline way. With the smoothing procedure, the tracker is more accurate and less likely to drift than traditional ones. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
