Abstract—A multicopter is equipped by a passive tracking device to follow a specified target. However, if want to track a non-controlled target, the passive tracking device is failed. We propose a vision-based tracking system for multicopters, used computer vision method to track any target without additional tracking devices. In this study, propose scale candidate graphs and scale tables to improve KCF. There are also stable results when the scale changes. The proposed an adaptable scaled KCF algorithm, when the KCF tracking failed, a feature-based matching detector is used to re-detect the target. Several experiments on various scene based on the proposed approach were conducted and evaluated. Stable tracking results were obtain to show the feasibility of the proposed system.
