In this paper, a novel multiple objects detection and tracking approach based on support vector machine and particle filter is proposed to track players in broadcast sports video. Compared with previous work, the contributions of this paper are focused on three aspects. First, an improved particle filter called SVR particle filter is proposed as the player tracker by integrating support vector regression (SVR) into sequential Monte Carlo framework. SVR particle filter enhances the performance… CONTINUE READING
