We propose an audio-visual fusion algorithm for 3D speaker tracking from a localised multi-modal sensor platform composed of a camera and a small microphone array. After extracting audio-visual cues from individual modalities we fuse them adaptively using their reliability in a particle filter framework. The reliability of the audio signal is measured based on the maximum Global Coherence Field (GCF) peak value at each frame. The visual reliability is based on colour-histogram matching with detection results compared with a reference image in the RGB space. Experiments on the AV16.3 dataset show that the proposed adaptive audio-visual tracker outperforms both the individual modalities and a classical approach with fixed parameters in terms of tracking accuracy.

Abstract

We propose an audio-visual fusion algorithm for 3D speaker tracking from a localised multi-modal sensor platform composed of a camera and a small microphone array. After extracting audio-visual cues from individual modalities we fuse them adaptively using their reliability in a particle filter framework. The reliability of the audio signal is measured based on the maximum Global Coherence Field (GCF) peak value at each frame. The visual reliability is based on colour-histogram matching with detection results compared with a reference image in the RGB space. Experiments on the AV16.3 dataset show that the proposed adaptive audio-visual tracker outperforms both the individual modalities and a classical approach with fixed parameters in terms of tracking accuracy.
