Inter-person occlusion handling is a critical issue in the field of tracking, and it has been extensively researched. Several state-of-the-art methods have been proposed, such as focusing on the appearance of the targets or utilizing knowledge of the scene. In contrast with the approaches proposed in the literature, we propose to address this issue using a social interaction model, which allows us to explore spatio-temporal information pertaining to the targets involved in the occlusion situation. Our experimental results show promising results compared with those obtained using other methods.
