A system using color histogram based recognition technique is presented for tracking of moving people. The proposed system aims to resolve the identity of each tracked person after an occlusion, which is a common problem encountered in tracking of multiple objects. The system recognizes and keeps track of moving people with the aid of their color histograms. To make the recognition more robust against change of background illumination, a shadow-removal scheme is designed to select only those pixels belonging to the tracked people for constructing their color histograms. Experimental results of real video data are reported to show the efficacy of the proposed system
