The Carnegie Mellon system was able to automatically follow the movements of 13 people within a nursing home, even though individuals sometimes slipped out of view of the cameras and researchers said they made use of multiple cues from the video feed: apparel color, person detection, trajectory and, perhaps most significantly, facial recognition, according to university researchers.
