In this paper, we propose an unsupervised method for recovering the topology of multiple cameras with non-overlapping fields of view. The nodes in the topology graph are defined as entry/exit zones in each camera while the connectivity between nodes is inferred through finding continuous paths in a trellis where appearance information and temporal information of moving objects are encoded. Unlike previous methods which assume a single mode transition distribution between nodes, our method is… CONTINUE READING
