Most of the state-of-the-art tracking algorithms rely on either intensity or color information. Therefore, seeking an effective image descriptor to construct a robust tracker is still a challenging problem. This paper investigates the contribution of saliency map for object tracking, and proposes a saliency detection method which is combined with the location information. Our method formulates the tracking framework based on a Bayesian framework, which models the statistical correlation between
