In this paper we propose an approach for multi-camera multi-person seamless tracking that allows camera assignment and hand-off based on a set of user-supplied criteria. The approach is based on the application of game theory to camera assignment problem. Bargaining mechanisms are considered for collaborations as well as for resolving conflicts among the available cameras. Camera utilities and person utilities are computed based on a set of criteria. They are used in the process of developing the bargaining mechanisms. Experiments for multi-camera multi-person tracking are provided. Several different criteria and their combination of them are carried out and compared with each other to corroborate the proposed approach.
