The ongoing research on object tracking in video sequences has attracted many researchers. Detecting the objects in the video and tracking its motion to identify its characteristics has been emerging as a demanding research area in the domain of image processing and computer vision. This paper proposes a literature review on the state of the art tracking methods, categorize them into different categories, and then identify useful tracking methods. Most of the methods include object segmentation

The tracking strategies use different methodologies like Mean-shift, Kalman filter, Particle filter etc. The performance of the tracking methods vary with respect to background information. In this survey, we have discussed the feature descriptors that are used in tracking to describe the appearance of objects which are being tracked as well as object detection techniques. In this survey, we have classified the tracking methods into three groups, and a providing a detailed description of representative methods in each group, and find out their positive and negative aspects.
