People Tracking in multiple cameras is of great interest for wide area video surveillance systems. Multi-camera tracking with non-overlapping fields of view (FOV) involves the tracking of people in the blind region and their correspondence matching across cameras. We consider these problems in this paper. We propose a multi camera architecture for wide area surveillance and a real time people tracking algorithm across non overlapping cameras. We compared different methods to evaluate the color Brightness Transfer Function (BTF) between non overlapping cameras. These approaches are based on a testing phase during which the color histogram mapping, between pairs of images of the same object observed in the different field of views, is carried out. The experimental results compare two different transfer functions and demonstrate their limits in people association when a new person enters in one camera FOV.
