This paper deals with the problem of multiple object tracking with the condensation algorithm, applied to tracking of soccer players. To solve the problem of failures in tracking multiple players under overlapping, we introduce occlusion alarm probability, which attracts or repels particles based on their posterior distribution of previous time step. Real experiments showed a robust performance.
