TL;DR: Novel end-to-end online MOT framework with a systematized event-aware loss.
Abstract: We propose an end-to-end online multi-object tracking (MOT) framework with a systematized event-aware loss, which is designed to control possible occurrences in an online MOT situation and compel the tracker to take appropriate actions when such events occur. Training samples from real candidates using a simulation tracker are generated, and a systematized event-aware association matrix is constructed for every frame to enable the tracker to learn the ideal action in a running environment. Several experiments, including ablation studies on various public MOT benchmark datasets, are conducted. The experimental results verify that each event affecting the tracking measure can be controlled, and the proposed method presents optimal results compared with recent state-of-the-art MOT methods.
