Benefiting from its ability to efficiently learn how an object is changing, correlation filters have recently demonstrated excellent performance for rapidly tracking objects. Designing effective features and handling model drifts are two important aspects for online visual tracking. This paper tackles these challenges by proposing a robust correlation tracking algorithm (RCT) based on two ideas: First, we propose a method to fuse features in order to more naturally describe the gradient and

Second, we present a novel strategy to significantly reduce noise in the response map and therefore ease the problem of model drift. Systematic comparative evaluations performed over multiple tracking benchmarks demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed approach.
