Behavior analysis across multi-cameras becomes more and more popular with the rapid development of camera network in video surveillance. In this paper, we propose a novel unsupervised graph matching framework to associate trajectories across partially overlapping cameras. Firstly, trajectory extraction is based on object extraction and tracking and is followed by a homographic projection to a mosaic-plane. And we extract appearance and spatio-temporal features for trajectory description. Then a robust graph matching algorithm based on reweighted random walk is adopted for trajectory association. The association is formulated as node ranking and selection on an association graph whose nodes represent candidate correspondences of trajectories. Finally, the pairs of corresponding trajectories in overlapping regions are fused by an adaptive averaging scheme, in which trajectories with more observations and longer length is given higher weight. Experiments and comparison on real scenarios demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
