External Cameras and a Mobile Robot for Enhanced Multi-person Tracking

Abstract

In this paper, we present a cooperative multi-person tracking system between external fixed-view wall mounted cameras and a mobile robot. The proposed system fuses visual detections from the external cameras and laser based detections from a mobile robot, in a centralized manner, employing a “tracking-by-detection” approach within a Particle Filtering scheme. The enhanced multi-person tracker’s ability to track targets in the surveilled area distinctively is demonstrated through quantitative experiments.
