Together with Prof. Andrea Cavallaro I will be giving a tutorial on multi-target tracking at the International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) in Brussels (Tutorial day: 11 September 2011). After a brief introduction on tracking basics and object detection techniques, the tutorial will focus on data association and spatio-temporal filtering when a variable number of targets are present in the scene. The talk will discuss assignment problems and milestone algorithms such as Reid’s Multi-Hypothesis Tracker (MHT). The second part will treat more “modern” approaches based on Random Finite Sets. We will conclude the talk introducing common techniques to evaluate a multi-target video tracker.
