In this paper, we propose a graph-based approach for detecting and tracking multiple players in broadcast soccer videos. In the first stage, the position of the players in each frame is determined by removing the non player regions. The remaining pixels are then grouped using a region growing algorithm to identify probable player candidates. A directed weighted graph is constructed, where probable player candidates correspond to the nodes of the graph while each edge links candidates in a frame… CONTINUE READING
