The current sparse representation tracking algorithm is not suitable for the objects that illumination changes, scale changes, the object color is similar with the surrounding region, and occlusion etc, what's more, it is hard to realize real-time tracking for solving an l1 norm related minimization problems. An optimal algorithm is introduced by exploiting an accelerated proximal gradient approach which contains some improvements of particle filter function, sparse representation alterative weights and coefficient. These improvements not only reduce the influences of appearance change but also make the tracker runs in real time. Both qualitative and quantitative evaluations demonstrate that the proposed tracking algorithm has favorably better performance than several state-of-the-art trackers using challenging benchmark image sequences, and significantly reduces the computing cost.
