In this paper, we propose a distributed sensing algorithm that integrates players' trajectories observed from multiple cameras during a football game. Football scenes present several situations where players occlude each other, thus generating ambiguities that may lead to tracking failures. The integration of tracks from different views may help disambiguate players tracks. The proposed approach first uses homography to synthesize the ground plane virtual top-view and then transforms players… CONTINUE READING
