This paper presents an overview of our work on real-time multimodal tracking focus of attention of multiple persons in a SmartRoom scenario. Redundancy among cameras is exploited to generate a 3D discrete reconstruction of the space. This information is fed to a novel low complexity Monte Carlo based tracking scheme. Estimated locations of people in the room are used to automatically determine their head positions. Head orientation of every person is computed using video and audio separately and then a multimodal estimation is produced by combining data at feature level employing a decentralized Kalman filter. Finally, participants’ focus attention is estimated by means of two geometric descriptors: the attention cone and the attention map. Experiments conducted over annotated databases yield quantitative results proving the effectiveness of the presented approach.
