An effective target modeling is the root of a robust and efficient tracking system. Color feature is widely used feature space for target modeling in real time tracking applications because of its computational efficiency and invariance towards change in shape, scale and rotation. The effective use of this feature with kernel-based target tracking can lead to a robust tracking system. This paper provides a comparative analysis of the performance of three variants of kernel-based tracking system using color feature. The simulation results show that the target modeling using transformed background weighted target model will perform efficiently when initialized target has similar color feature with background while the combination of color-texture will be more accurate and robust when texture features are prominently present.
