Person Tracking API allows you to track people and their activity within a scene or segment. The way that person tracking works is simple: person detection identifies individuals in a video, then tracks them over time by their face, clothing or posture.
Person Tracking API can be used as a standalone tool, or it can be combined with face detection to generate more accurate results. You can use person tracking to analyze situations with high levels of complexity, such as crowded scenes with multiple individuals, crowded transportation areas such as airports, trains and metro stations.
