In this paper, we propose a novel robust multiple human tracking approach based upon processing a video signal by utilizing a social force model to enhance the particle probability hypothesis density (PHD) filter. In traditional dynamic models, the states of targets are only predicted by their own history; however, in multiple human tracking, the information from interaction between targets and the intentions of each target can be employed to obtain more robust prediction. Furthermore, such information can mitigate the problems of collision and occlusion. The cardinality of variable number of targets can also be estimated by using the PHD filter, hence improving the overall accuracy of the multiple human tracker. In this work, a background subtraction step has also been employed to identify the new born targets and provide the measurement set for the PHD filter. To evaluate tracking performance, sequences from both the CAVIAR and PETS2009 datasets are employed for evaluation, which shows clear improvement of the proposed method over the conventional particle PHD filter.
