Abstract
Template tracking dates back to the 1981 Lucas-Kanade algorithm. One question that has received very little attention, however, is how to update the template so that it remains a good model of the tracked object. We propose a template update algorithm that avoids the ``drifting'' inherent in the naive algorithm.

Keywords
Template tracking, the Lucas-Kanade algorithm, active appearance models
