Multiple Tracking of Moving Objects with Kalman Filtering and PCA-GMM Method


In this article we propose to combine an integrated method, the PCA-GMM method that generates a relatively improved segmentation outcome as compared to conventional GMM with Kalman Filtering (KF). The combined new method the PCA-GMM-KF attempts tracking multiple moving objects; the size and position of the objects along the sequence of their images in dynamic scenes. The obtained experimental results successfully illustrate the tracking of multiple moving objects based on this robust combination
