Multiple object tracking has been formulated recently as a global optimization problem, and solved efficiently with optimal methods such as the Hungarian Algorithm. A severe limitation is the inability to model multiple objects that are merged into a single measurement, and track them as a group, while retaining optimality. This work presents a new graph structure that encodes these multiple-match events as standard one-to-one matches, allowing computation of the solution in polynomial time.

The problem of tracking individual objects across groups is then posed as a standard optimal assignment. Experiments show increased performance on the PETS 2006 and 2009 datasets compared to state-of-the-art algorithms.
