Paper Abstract

In team sports scenes, recorded during training and lessons, it is common to have many players on the court, each with his own ball performing different actions. Our goal is to detect all players in the handball court and determine the leading player who performs the given handball technique such as a shooting at the goal, catching a ball or dribbling. This is a very challenging task for which, apart from an accurate object detector that is able to deal with cluttered scenes with many objects, partially occluded and with bad illumination, additional information is needed to determine the leading player. Therefore, we propose a leading player detector method combining the Mask R-CNN object detector and spatiotemporal interest points, referred to as MR-CNN+STIPs. The performance of the proposed leading player detector is evaluated on a custom sports video dataset acquired during handball training lessons. The performance of the detector in different conditions will be discussed.
