Description:

We introduce a computationally efficient algorithm for
multi-object tracking by detection that addresses four main
challenges: appearance similarity among targets, missing
data due to targets being out of the field of view or oc-
cluded behind other objects, crossing trajectories, and cam-
era motion. The proposed method uses motion dynamics as
a cue to distinguish targets with similar appearance, min-
imize target mis-identification and recover missing data.
Computational efficiency is achieved by using a General-
ized Linear Assignment (GLA) coupled with efficient proce-
dures to recover missing data and estimate the complexity
of the underlying dynamics. The proposed approach works
with tracklets of arbitrary length and does not assume a
dynamical model a priori, yet it captures the overall mo-
tion dynamics of the targets. Experiments using challenging
videos show that this framework can handle complex target
motions, non-stationary cameras and long occlusions, on
scenarios where appearance cues are not available or poor.
