A novel curve segmentation algorithm for determining control points for deformable-model-based target tracking is proposed. The algorithm is parameterless enabling a full-fledged automated tracking regardless of the shape of the object being tracked. Compared with other curve segmentation algorithms, it selects a minimal number of control points that yet deliver a superior shape description. The algorithm is comparatively tested with other curve segmentation algorithms in a variety of characteristic target outlines.
