To help accelerate progress in multi-target, multi-camera tracking systems, we present (i) a new pair of precision-recall measures of performance that treats errors of all types uniformly and emphasizes correct identification over sources of error; (ii) the largest fully-annotated and calibrated data set to date with more than 2 million frames of 1080p,(More)
In this paper we present a novel approach to detect groups in ego-vision scenarios. People in the scene are tracked through the video sequence and their head pose and 3D location are estimated. Based on the concept of f-formation, we define with the orientation and distance an inherently social pairwise feature that describes the affinity of a pair of(More)
Group detection in crowds will play a key role in future behavior analysis surveillance systems. In this work we build a new Structural SVM-based learning framework able to solve the group detection task by exploiting annotated video data to deduce a sociologically motivated distance measure founded on Hall’s proxemics and Granger’s causality. We improve(More)
Online Multiple Target Tracking (MTT) is often addressed within the tracking-by-detection paradigm. Detections are previously extracted independently in each frame and then objects trajectories are built by maximizing specifically designed coherence functions. Nevertheless, ambiguities arise in presence of occlusions or detection errors. In this paper we(More)
Conventional experiments on MTT are built upon the belief that fixing the detections to different trackers is sufficient to obtain a fair comparison. In this work we argue how the true behavior of a tracker is exposed when evaluated by varying the input detections rather than by fixing them. We propose a systematic and reproducible protocol and a MATLAB(More)
Leader identification is a crucial task in social analysis, crowd management and emergency planning. In this paper, we investigate a computational model for the individuation of leaders in crowded scenes. We deal with the lack of a formal definition of leadership by learning, in a supervised fashion, a metric space based exclusively on people spatiotemporal(More)
Modern crowd theories agree that collective behavior is the result of the underlying interactions among small groups of individuals. In this work, we propose a novel algorithm for detecting social groups in crowds by means of a Correlation Clustering procedure on people trajectories. The affinity between crowd members is learned through an online(More)
Autonomous and assisted driving are undoubtedly hot topics in computer vision. However, the driving task is extremely complex and a deep understanding of drivers' behavior is still lacking. Several researchers are now investigating the attention mechanism in order to define computational models for detecting salient and interesting objects in the scene.(More)
We propose a method for tracking groups from single and multiple cameras with disjoint fields of view. Our formulation follows the tracking-by-detection paradigm where groups are the atomic entities and are linked over time to form long and consistent trajectories. To this end, we formulate the problem as a supervised clustering problem where a Structural(More)
