In this paper, we describe a novel object tracking technique in color video sequences, with application to multi-object tracking in crowded scenes. The proposed paradigm integrates object detection into the object tracking process and provide a robust tracking framework under ambiguity conditions. In order to reduce the computational complexity and to increase the robustness, we use a tri-sectional structure. i.e., firstly it distinguishes between real world objects, secondly extracts image features like motion blobs and color patches and thirdly abstracts objects like meta-objects that shall denote real world objects. Through such a tight integration of the motion blobs and color patches, as well as the global optimization of object trajectories, we have accomplished not only robust and efficient multi-object tracking, but also the ability to deal with merging/ splitting of objects, irregular object motions, changing appearances, etc. which are the challenging problems for the most traditional tracking methods. The efficiency of the suggested technique for multi-objects detection and tracking will be demonstrated in this paper on the basis of analysis of strongly disturbed real image sequences.

    Humanoid robots posses the unique ability to cross obstacles by stepping over or upon them. However, conventional 2D methods for robot navigation fail to exploit this ability and thus design trajectories only by circumventing obstacles. Recently, global algorithms have been presented that take...
