Integrated Person Tracking Using Stereo, Color, and Pattern Detection
We present an approach to real-time person tracking in crowded and/or unknown environments using multi-modal integration. We combine stereo, color, and face detection modules into a single robust system, and show an initial application in an interactive, face-responsive display. Dense, real-time stereo processing is used to isolate users from other objects and people in the background. Skin-hue classification identifies and tracks likely body parts within the silhouette of a user. Face pattern detection discriminates and localizes the face within the identified body parts. Faces and bodies of users are tracked over several temporal scales: short-term (user stays within the field of view), medium-term (user exits/reenters within minutes), and long term (user returns after hours or days). Short-term tracking is performed using simple region position and size correspondences, while medium and long-term tracking are based on statistics of user appearance. We discuss the failure modes of e...
