Abstract : In this thesis, the modelling of audio-visual perception with a head-like device is considered. The related problems, namely audio-visual calibration, audio-visual object detection, localization and tracking are addressed. A spatio-temporal approach to the head-like device calibration is proposed based on probabilistic multimodal trajectory matching. The formalism of conjugate mixture models is introduced along with a family of efficient optimization algorithms to perform multimodal clustering. One instance of this algorithm family, namely the conjugate expectation maximization (ConjEM) algorithm is further improved to gain attractive theoretical properties. The multimodal object detection and object number estimation methods are developed, their theoretical properties are discussed. Finally, the proposed multimodal clustering method is combined with the object detection and object number estimation strategies and known tracking techniques to perform multimodal multiobject tracking. The performance is demonstrated on simulated data and the database of realistic audio-visual scenarios (CAVA database).
