Abstract
Although monocular 2D tracking has been largely studied in the literature, it suffers from some inherent problems, mainly when handling persistent occlusions, that limit its performance in practical situations. Tracking methods combining observations from multiple cameras seem to solve these problems. However, most multi-camera systems require detailed information from each view, making it impossible their use in real networks with low transmission rate. In this paper, we present a robust multi-camera 3D tracking method which works on schematic descriptions of the observations performed by each camera of the system, allowing thus its performance in real surveillance networks. It is based on unspecific 2D detection systems working independently in each camera, whose results are smartly combined by means of a Bayesian association method based on geometry and color, allowing the 3D tracking of the objects of the scene with a Particle Filter. The tests performed show the excellent performance of the system, even correcting possible failures of the 2D processing modules.
