This paper proposes an approach for tracking multiple articulated targets using a combined data association and evolving population particle filter. A visual target is represented as a pictorial structure using a collection of parts together with a model of their geometry. Tracking multiple targets in video involves an iterative alternating scheme of selecting valid measurements belonging to a target from a clutter or other measurements that all fall within a validation gate. An algorithm with extended likelihood probabilistic data association and evolving groups of populations of particles representing a multiple-part distribution is designed. Variety in the particles is introduced using constrained genetic operators both in the sampling and resampling steps. We explore the effect of various model parameters on system performance and show that the proposed model achieves better accuracy than other widely used methods on standard datasets.
