Online People Tracking and Identification with RFID and Kinect

02/10/2017 ∙ by Xinyu Li, et al. ∙ 0

We introduce a novel, accurate and practical system for real-time people tracking and identification. We used a Kinect V2 sensor for tracking that generates a body skeleton for up to six people in the view. We perform identification using both Kinect and passive RFID, by first measuring the velocity vector of person's skeleton and of their RFID tag using the position of the RFID reader antennas as reference points and then finding the best match between skeletons and tags. We introduce a method for synchronizing Kinect data, which is captured regularly, with irregular or missing RFID data readouts. Our experiments show centimeter-level people tracking resolution with 80 environments, which meets the needs of many applications. Our system can preserve user privacy and work with different lighting.
