In this paper, we present a novel part-based visual tracking method from the perspective of probability sampling. Specifically, we represent the target by a part space with two online learned probabilities to capture the structure of the target. The proposal distribution memorizes the historical performance of different parts, and it is used for the first round of part selection. The acceptance probability validates the specific tracking stability of each part in a frame, and it determines whether to accept its vote or to reject it. By doing this, we transform the complex online part selection problem into a probability learning one, which is easier to tackle. The observation model of each part is constructed by an improved supervised descent method and is learned in an incremental manner. Experimental results on two benchmarks demonstrate the competitive performance of our tracker against state-of-the-art methods.
