The tracker is based on the early work of Lucas and Kanade [1] and was developed fully by Tomasi and Kanade [2], but the only published, readily accessible description is contained in the paper by Shi and Tomasi [3]. Briefly, good features are located by examining the minimum eigenvalue of each 2 by 2 gradient matrix, and features are tracked using a Newton-Raphson method of minimizing the difference between the two windows. Multiresolution tracking allows for even large displacements between images.
