Abstract

In this paper, we present the findings of the Augmented Multiparty Interaction (AMI) project investigation on the localization and tracking of 2D head positions in meetings. The focus of the study was to test and evaluate various multi-person tracking methods developed in the project using a standardized data set and evaluation methodology.
