In this paper we describe the analysis component of an indoor, real-time, multi-camera surveillance system. The analysis includes: (1) a novel feature-level foreground segmentation method which achieves efficient and reliable segmentation results even under complex conditions, (2) an efficient greedy search based approach for tracking multiple people through occlusion, and (3) a method for multi-camera handoff that associates individual trajectories in adjacent cameras. The analysis is used for an 18 camera surveillance system that has been running continuously in an indoor business over the past several months. Our experiments demonstrate that the processing method for people detection and tracking across multiple cameras is fast and robust.
