Abstract : Modeling and predicting human and vehicle motion is an active research do- main. Due to the difficulty of modeling the various factors that determine motion (eg in- ternal state, perception, etc.) this is often tackled by applying machine learning techniques to build a statistical model, using as input a collection of trajectories gathered through a sensor (eg camera, laser scanner), and then using that model to predict further motion. Un- fortunately, most current techniques use off-line learning algorithms, meaning that they are not able to learn new motion patterns once the learning stage has finished. In this paper, we present an approach which is able to learn new motion patterns incrementally, and in parallel with prediction. Our work is based on a novel extension to Hidden Markov Models called Growing Hidden Markov models.
