In this paper, we introduce a complex approach on 4D reconstruction of dynamic scenarios containing multiple walking pedestrians. The input of the process is a point cloud sequence recorded by a rotating multi-beam Lidar sensor, which monitors the scene from a fixed position. The output is a geometrically reconstructed and textured scene containing moving 4D people models, which can follow in real time the trajectories of the walking pedestrians observed on the Lidar data flow. Our implemented system consists of four main steps. First, we separate foreground and background regions in each point cloud frame of the sequence by a robust probabilistic approach. Second, we perform moving pedestrian detection and tracking, so that among the point cloud regions classified as foreground, we separate the different objects, and assign the corresponding people positions to each other over the consecutive frames of the Lidar measurement sequence. Third, we geometrically reconstruct the ground, walls and further objects of the background scene, and texture the obtained models with photos taken from the scene. Fourth we insert into the scene textured 4D models of moving pedestrians which were preliminary created in a special 4D reconstruction studio. Finally, we integrate the system elements in a joint dynamic scene model and visualize the 4D scenario.
