Leveraging Future Trajectory Prediction for Multi-Camera People Tracking
Artificial intelligence-based surveillance system, one of the essential systems for smart cities, plays a critical role in ensuring the safety and well-being of individuals. In this paper, we propose a real-time, low-computation cost Multi-Camera Multi-Target (MCMT) tracking system for people, leveraging deep-learning-based trajectory predic tion with spatial-temporal information and social informa tion. By predicting people's future trajectories, our al gorithm effectively handles object occlusion problems and maintains accurate tracking while keeping computational costs low. Our approach addresses object occlusion without relying on computationally expensive re-identification, and improves MCMT tracking performance using graph-based tracklet representation, and spectral clustering. As a re sult, our proposed approach is tested on the 2023 AI City Challenge Track 1 test dataset, automatically generated on the NVIDIA Omiverse Platform, our method achieves an IDF1 score of 0.6171 and real-time performance at 27.6 FPS.
