Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance

The goal of MCSPT evaluation is to facilitate research via a common evaluation task that focuses on one aspect of person tracking technologies: the ability to track a specified person within a video sensor field using a small set of in situ exemplar video images to specify the person. We refer to these technologies as Single Person Tracking (SPT) technologies. 

The evaluation is open to all participants and the results of the evaluation will be discussed during a special session at the 2010 AVSS conference.
