In this case, the projected human height varies notably with time.

By the previous prediction algorithm we get an estimated height of the head h,, and set m' in the range of [-h,--Am, h, + Am]. Since the height and width of ! head zoom in proportion, n is set in [ h , ( n / m ) - - ( n / m ) A m , h , ( n / m ) + ( n / m ) A m ] . Starting from the predicted point, for every point ( x , y ) on the search path, we form a block A' by { ( x , y ) , m f ,n f , 0 ! } and calculate its similarity with the head block of current frame A. The system records the block A' which has the largest similarity.
