A method is developed to track planar and near planar objects by incorporating a model of the expected image template distortion, and fitting the sampling region to pre-trained examples with general regression. The approach does not assume a particular form of the underlying space, allows a natural handling of occluding objects, and permits dynamic changes of the scale and size of the sampled region. The implementation of the algorithm runs comfortably in modest hardware at video-rate.
