Object tracking in video sequences is a very important topic and has various applications in video compression, surveillance, robot technology, etc. In many applications, the focus is on tracking moving object. Object tracking is the problem of generating an inference about the motion of an object from the sequence of frames in a video. In this paper, we propose a method for tracking moving objects in video sequences.
