                         tracking robust to partial and short-time total occlusions. 
                         Initially, the original template is divided into rectangular 
                         subregions (patches), and each patch is tracked independently. The 
                         displacement of the whole template is obtained using a weighted 
                         vector median filter that combines the displacement of each patch 
                         and also a predicted displacement computed based on the previous 
                         frames. An updating scheme is also applied to cope with appearance 
                         changes of the template. Experimental results indicate that the 
                         proposed scheme is robust to partial and short-time total 
                         occlusions, presenting a good compromise between accuracy and 
                         execution time when compared to other competitive approaches.",
