The cameras were able to “talk” to each other, he added, so the target could be highlighted, making it easy for the next camera to pick up the chase. They could do that, without human supervision, even if the target’s face could not be seen.
This would work anywhere, Hwang said, as long as the cameras are part of a network and can upload data to the cloud.
“The proposed system can not only track the pedestrians effectively, but can also robustly handle occlusion during tracking,” so even if the target disappears for awhile, it will still work, according to Hwang’s study, which was presented to an international conference in China last month.
