Objects tracking is finding the trajectory of each object in consecutive frames. Human tracking is a subset of object tracking which just considers humans.
I've seen many papers that divide tracking methods into two parts:
- Online tracking: Tracker just uses current and previous frames.
- Offline tracking: Tracker uses all frames.
All of them mention that online tracking is suitable for autonomous driving and robotics, but I don't understand this part. What are the applications of object/human tracking in autonomous driving?
Do you know some related papers?
