Abstract
An apparatus (100) for providing object information based on an image sequence (160) comprising a plurality of images is provided. The apparatus (100) comprises an object detector (110) for conducting object detection on three or more images of the plurality of images of the image sequence (160) to obtain the object information, wherein each image of the image sequence (160) on which object detection is conducted, is an object-detected image (175) of the image sequence (160), and wherein each image of the image sequence (160) on which object detection is not conducted, is not an object-detected image of the image sequence (160). Moreover, the apparatus (100) comprises an object tracker (120) for conducting object tracking on one or more images of the image sequence (160) to obtain the object information. An object detection distance is defined for each pair of two object-detected images (175) of the image sequence (160), for which at least one image exists between said two object-detected images (175) within the image sequence (160), and for which no object-detected image exists between said two object-detected images (175) within the image sequence (160), as the number of images between said two object-detected images (175) within the image sequence (160), which are not object-detected images. The object detection distance is different for at least two pairs of two object-detected images (175) of the image sequence (160).
