Description:Evaluation and adoption of state-of-the-art tracking methods for tracking players in low-resolution videos of soccer games.
A common problem during player tracking is the change of the players appearance because of changing illumination conditions (e.g. shadow) or because parts of the player are temporarily occluded. Under such circumstances classical tracking methods have a higher risk to fail.
However, the player will be redetected after some frames and the question arise, how to maintain the correct identity of the players despite the low resolution and the similar color of players of the same team.

The task is to study and evaluate state-of-the-art tracking methods in this application context. At SCCH there ground-truth data are available which are acquired by means of a high-resolution transponder system.
