Setting up VOT workspace
Download VOT toolkit from git repository (https://github.com/votchallenge/vot-toolkit), either
- by using git command line :
git clone https://github.com/votchallenge/vot-toolkit
- by downloading a zip file
From now on we are assuming you have toolkit in
vot-toolkit directory. It is recommended that you add at least this directory to default path list in Matlab/Octave. Then create an empty directory that will be used to perform your experiments. We will call this directory
toolkit_pathto ensure that all the required subdirectories are in matlab path (you must be in
vot-toolkitdirectory or have have the
vot-toolkitdirectory in the path list for this to work).
- Go to
vot-workspacedirectory. Run matlab and execute
- Select an experiment stack that you want to use (e.g.
vot2013denotes the VOT2013 benchmark experiment stack).
- Enter the unique indentifier of your tracker (e.g.
NCCfor norm-crosscorrelation tracker).
Select the interpreter used in your tracker (or none if the tracker is compiled into an executable).
The script will automatically initialize the toolkit environment, generate a workspace configuration file
vot-workspace/configuration.m and a configuration file template for your tracker (e.g.
vot-workspace/tracker_NCC.m). Note that your tracker is not configured yet, for more information on how to correctly set up the tracker, you should check the integration tutorial.
