In this paper, we propose a probabilistic method to model the dynamic traffic flow across non-overlapping camera views. By assuming the transition time of object movement follows a certain global model, we may infer the time-varying traffic status in the unseen region without performing explicit object correspondence between camera views. In this paper, we model object correspondence and parameter estimation as a unified problem under the proposed Expectation-Maximization (EM) based framework. By treating object correspondence as a latent random variable, the proposed framework can iteratively search for the optimal model parameters with the implicit consideration of object correspondence.
