This distribution includes the executable code for the tracker in [1]. It is written in C++ and uses the OpenCV 2.1. It has been tested on a machine running Windows 7, using Visual Studio 9.0.

1. Prepare a config file called "config.txt" and place it in the same directory as the executable file.

2. Run the executable file "PartTracker_v1.0.exe".

3. The following output should be obtained:

	- during the run - a visual window with the tracking results
	- a result file called "PartTracker_[sequence name]_gt.txt" containing the tracking results in the same directory as the tracking sequence


Sequences are assumed to be of the format of those used in:
