Blade, the Vicon motion capture solution for the entertainment market is close to release and the marketing team shot a promotional video first shown at SIGGRAPH 2012 . As for the video I linked in the previous post the footage shows application scenarios and results of the real-time full-body tracking […]
My first large project at Vicon Motion Systems is close to completion. The aim of the project was to design new real-time algorithms for performance capture that could produce main improvements in terms of number of characters allowed in the scene at the same time, robustness to occlusions, and overall quality […]
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 […]
Particle Filter and Mean Shift tracking
Particle filter is the name given to the sample-based (i.e., Montecarlo) approximation of the Bayes recursion. The algorithm is a popular substitute for the Kalman filter in presence of non-Gaussianity of the noise statistics and non-linearity of the relationships […]
I have created a new section of the website that I will populate with information on my past and present research. I have started with a page on the use of Random Finite Sets to track multiple-targets in video sequences. I have also added a couple of interesting videos: one shows an example of […]
Tracking with Random Finite Sets
Many tracking algorithms use the Bayes recursion to propagate uncertain estimates based on uncertain observation over time. This is a well established probabilistic framework for single-target tracking. A problem arises if we want to extend the Bayes framework to multiple objects and we are required to estimate the number […]
My book on video tracking, co-authored by Professor Andrea Cavallaro is finally out. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental aspects of algorithm and application development for the video tracking task.
More information about the book and video tracking in general is available at www.videotracking.org.
If you find the topic interesting […]
