Person tracking is a key requirement for modern service robots. But methods for robot vision have to fulfill several constraints: they have to be robust to errors evoked by noisy sensor data, they have to be able to work under real-world conditions, and they have to be fast and computationally inexpensive. In this paper we present an approach for tracking the position of a person in 3D based on a particle filter. In our framework, each particle represents a hypothesis for the 3D position, velocity and size of the person's head being tracked. Two cameras are used for the evaluation of the particles. The particles are weighted by projecting them onto the camera image and applying a color-based perception model. This model uses skin color cues for face tracking and color histograms for body tracking. In contrast to feature-based approaches, our system even works when the person is temporary or partially occluded. © 2008 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
