Toward User-specific Tracking by Detection of Human Shapes in Multi-Cameras

Human shape tracking consists in fitting a template model to temporal sequences of visual observations. It usually comprises an association step, that finds correspondences between the model and the input data, and a deformation step, that fits the model to the observations given correspondences. Most current approaches find their common ground with the Iterative-Closest-Point (ICP) algorithm, which facilitates the association step with local distance considerations. It fails when large deformations occur, and errors in the association tend to propagate and accumulate over time. In this paper, we propose a discriminative alternative for the association, that leverages regression forests to infer correspondences in one shot. It allows for large deformations and prevents tracking errors from accumulating. The approach is successfully integrated to a surface tracking framework that recovers human shapes and poses jointly. When combined with ICP, this discriminative association proves to yield faster convergence and better accuracy in registration, and more stability when tracking over time. Evaluations on existing datasets demonstrate the benefits with respect to the state-of-the-art.
