Tracking multiple people


For an art installation at a small light festival, I’m looking for a way to track people walking through a small street.
My idea is to set up a webcam (or Kinect V2 sensor) at a high position pointing down to the street.
Then I need an x/y coordinate of all people walking in that area with an id, so I can follow them.
If this system can track about 20 people at once, that will be enough.
Since this will be used in the evening, there will not be much ambient light.

I’ve been looking/reading docs and videos about blob-tracking and computer vision, but I’m still not sure what would be the best approach.

I have no preference for processing or p5.js, so both will be fine for me.

Any advice on a good approach would be very welcome.
