Target tracking in a multi-camera system is an active and challenging research that in many systems requires video synchronisation and knowledge of the camera set-up and layout. In this paper a highly flexible, modular and decentralised system architecture is presented for multi-camera target tracking with relaxed synchronisation constraints among camera views. Moreover, the system does not rely on positional information to handle camera hand-off events. As a practical application, the system itself can, at any time, automatically select the best target view available, to implicitly solve occlusion. Further, to validate the proposed architecture, an extension to a multi-camera environment of the colour-based IMS-SWAD tracker is used. The experimental results show that the tracker can successfully track a chosen target in multiple views, in both indoor and outdoor environments, with non-overlapping and overlapping camera views.
