A part-based strategy has been applied to visual tracking with demonstrated success in recent years. Different from most existing part-based methods that only employ one type of tracking representation model, in this paper, we propose an effective complementary tracker based on structural patch response fusion under correlation filter and color histogram models. The proposed method includes two component trackers with complementary merits to adaptively handle illumination variation and

In addition, we design different loss metrics of tracked patches in two components to be applied in the proposed hedge algorithm. Finally, we selectively combine the two component trackers at the response maps level with different merging factors according to the confidence of each component tracker. Extensive experimental evaluations on OTB2013, OTB2015, and VOT2016 datasets show outstanding performance of the proposed algorithm contrasted with some state-of-the-art trackers.
