Abstract: The many different mean shift techniques for object tracking in real time are discussed in this paper. The mean shift is a non-parametric feature space analysis technique. It is a method for finding local maxima of a density function from given discrete data samples.There are several approaches that use the mean shift techniques for locating target objects. These techniques are taken from the literature dating back to the earliest methods. It is shown that at least 07 distinct methods have been introduced in the literature, with many variations on implementation. This paper should serve as a convenient reference for future work in real time object tracking.
