caffe-windows:Reference to caffe-windows installation online.

opencv : we recommend opencv3.x(opencv2.x can also be used, just replace some functions)

vs2015/vs2013 build and run: configure the third party of caffe-windows in the project property sheet.

Source code description::

ECO.h, ECO.cpp tracker: parameter and feature parameters intialization, label generator, cos-window function, and so on.

ecosampleupdate.h, ecosampleupdate.cpp: Relevant functions of updating sample model (Calculating samples distance, update sample space model, etc.)

featureextractor.h, featureextractor.cpp: The function of feature extraction (sampling, cnn and hog feature extractor)

featureoperator.h, featureoperator.cpp: feature operator overloading, mapping function.

fftTools.h, fftTools.cpp: Complex matrix operations, fourier domain calculation.

optimizescores.h, optimizescores.cpp: Calculation of the score of final features map.

training.h, training.cpp: Feature training and update class

Detailed description and description follow-up update


The name of variables , functions of the classes are according to ECO matlab version. During debugging code, also you can reference to ECO Matlab version.

Vgg model is available at After downloading, the path of the VGG folder in the main.cpp on the line 59,60,61 shall be modified.
