Abstract: The problem of deformable object tracking is prominent in recent robot shape-manipulation research. Additionally, texture-less objects that undergo large deformations and movements lead to difficult scenarios. Three RGB-D sequences of different challenging scenarios are processed in order to evaluate the robustness and versatility of a deformable object tracking method. Everyday objects of different complex characteristics are manipulated and tracked. The tracking system, pushed out the comfort zone, performs satisfactorily.
