An Adaptive Bayesian Technique for Tracking Multiple Objects
Abstract. Robust tracking of objects in video is a key challenge in computer vision with applications in automated surveillance, video indexing, human-computer-interaction, gesture recognition, traffic monitoring, etc. Many algorithms have been developed for tracking an object in controlled environments. However, they are susceptible to failure when the challenge is to track multiple objects that undergo appearance change to due to factors such as variation in illumination and object pose. In this paper we presentatrackerbased on Bayesian estimation,which isrelatively robustto objectappearancechange,and can track multipletargetssimultaneously in real time. The object model for computing the likelihood function is incrementally updated and uses background-foreground segmentation information to ameliorate the problem of drift associated with object model update schemes. We demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method by tracking objects in image sequences from the CAVIAR dataset.
