Multi-layer hierarchical clustering of pedestrian trajectories for automatic counting of people in video sequences
In this paper we propose an approach to count the number of pedestrians, given a trajectory data set provided by a tracking system. The tracking process itself is treated as a black box providing us the input data. The idea is to apply a hierarchical clustering algorithm, using different data representations and distance measures, as a post-processing step. The final goal is to reduce the difference between the number of tracked pedestrians and the real number of individuals present in the scene.
