The competition currently includes several different tracks, such as short-time tracking (bounding-box and segmentation annotation), real-time tracking, and long-time tracking. The goal of the tracking task is that given the object to be tracked in the first frame of the video, the algorithm finds the corresponding target in each subsequent frames.

Finally, the team won the first place in the tracks of VOT-STb2022 (box GT) & VOT-RTb2022.
