Object tracking through particle filtering has been widely addressed in recent years. However, most works assume a constant number of objects or utilize an external detector that monitors the entry or exit of objects in the scene. In this work, a novel tracking method based on particle filtering that is able to automatically track a variable number of objects is presented. As opposed to classical prior data assignment approaches, adaptation of tracks to the measurements is managed globally. Additionally, the designed particle filter is able to generate hypotheses on the presence of new objects in the scene, and to confirm or dismiss them by gradually adapting to the global observation. The method is especially suited for environments where traditional object detectors render noisy measurements and frequent artifacts, such as that given by a camera mounted on a vehicle, where it is proven to yield excellent results.
