In this work, we address the task of semi-supervised video object segmentation (VOS) and explore how to make efficient use of video property to tackle the challenge of semi-supervision. We propose a novel pipeline called State-Aware Tracker (SAT), which can produce accurate segmentation results with real-time speed. For higher efficiency, SAT takes advantage of the inter-frame consistency and deals with each target object as a tracklet. For more stable and robust performance over video

The other loop helps to construct a more robust and holistic target representation. SAT achieves a promising result of 72.3% J &F mean with 39 FPS on DAVIS2017-Val dataset, which shows a decent trade-off between efficiency and accuracy.
