For applications such as behavior recognition it is important to maintain the identity of multiple targets, while tracking them in the presence of splits and merges, or occlusion of the targets by background obstacles. Here we propose an algorithm to handle multiple splits and merges of objects based on dynamic programming and a new geometric shape matching measure. We then cooperatively combine Kalman filter-based motion and shape tracking with the efficient and novel geometric shape matching… CONTINUE READING
