Multi-person tracking strategies based on voxel analysis

This paper presents two approaches to the problem of simultaneous tracking of several people in low resolution sequences from multiple calibrated cameras. Spatial redundancy is exploited to generate a discrete 3D binary representation of the foreground objects in the scene. Color information obtained from a zenithal camera view is added to this 3D information. The first tracking approach implements heuristic association rules between blobs labelled according to spatiotemporal connectivity criteria. Association rules are based on a cost function which considers their placement and color histogram. In the second approach, a particle filtering scheme adapted to the incoming 3D discrete data is proposed. A volume likelihood function and a discrete 3D re-sampling procedure are introduced to evaluate and drive particles. Multiple targets are tracked by means of multiple particle filters and interaction among them is modeled through a 3D blocking scheme. Evaluation over the CLEAR 2007 database yields quantitative results assessing the performance of the proposed algorithm for indoor scenarios.
