Fusion of marker-based tracking and particle-filter based camera tracking

We have developed a novel a video-based tracker that combines a marker-based tracker and a particle filter-based camera tracker. The framework relies on their complementary performance. We propose a fusion where the overall estimate is selected among the individual estimates. More precisely, the marker-based tracker is selected when the reference is available whereas the particle filter-based camera tracker is selected otherwise.

Some snapshots of the performance of the fusion tracker in front of:
Marker partially out of the field of view
Video input with little illumination
Video input with saturated illumination
