A robust shape-matching measure with a boundary detection preprocessor is proposed to track a moving object in complex image sequences. A correlation-tracking algorithm seeks to align the incoming target image with the reference image of the target. But it has a critical problem if we use the conventional block-matching criteria. This is the so-called 'false peak problem', which is generally caused by highly correlated background pixels with similar intensities to the pixels of moving targets.
