Abstract. After the development of deep learning object tracking methods in recent years, the fully convolutional siamese network object tracking algorithm SiamFC has become a more classic deep learning object tracking algorithm. In view of the problem that the accuracy of the tracking results of SiamFC will be reduced in the case of complex backgrounds, this paper introduces the attention mechanism based on the SiamFC, which performs channel and spatial weighting on the feature maps obtained by convolution of the input image. At the same time, the backbone network model of CNN in the algorithm is adjusted, then the siamese network combined with attention mechanism for object tracking is proposed. It can strengthen the effectiveness of the results of feature extraction and enhance the ability of the network model to discriminate targets. In this paper, the algorithm is tested on the OTB2015, VOT2016 and VOT2017 datasets, and compared with multiple object tracking algorithms. Experimental results show that the algorithm in this paper can better solve the complex background problem in object tracking, and has certain advantages compared with other algorithms.
