Summary: 
The correlation filter-based trackers with an appearance model established by single feature have poor robustness to challenging video environment which includes factors such as occlusion, fast motion and out-of-view. In this paper, a long-term tracking algorithm based on multi-feature adaptive fusion for video target is presented. We design a robust appearance model by fusing powerful features including histogram of gradient, local binary pattern and color-naming at response map level to conquer the interference in the video. In addition, a random fern classifier is trained as re-detector to detect target when tracking failure occurs, so that long-term tracking is implemented. We evaluate our algorithm on large-scale benchmark datasets and the results show that the proposed algorithm have more accurate and more robust performance in complex video environment.
