In this article a Bayesian filter approximation is proposed for simultaneous multiple target detection and tracking and then applied for object detection on video from moving camera. The inference uses the evidence lower bound optimisation for Gaussian mixtures. The proposed filter is capable of real time data processing and may be used as a basis for data fusion. The method we propose was tested on the video with dynamic background,where the velocity with respect to the background is used to discriminate the objects. The framework does not depend on the feature space, that means that different feature spaces can be unrestrictedly used while preserving the structure of the filter.
