Abstract : This paper presents a new method to both track and segment objects in videos. It includes predictions and observations inside an energy function that is minimized with graph cuts. The min-cut/max-flow algorithm provides a segmentation as the global minimum of the energy function, at a modest computational cost. Simultaneously, our algorithm associates the tracked objects to the observations during the tracking. It thus combines “detect-before-track” tracking algorithms and segmentation methods based on color/motion distributions and/or temporal consistency. Results on real sequences are presented in which the robustness to partial occlusions and to missing observations is shown.
