Since falls are a major public health problem in an aging society, there is considerable demand for low-cost fall detection systems. One of the main reasons for non-acceptance of the currently available solutions by seniors is that the fall detectors using only inertial sensors generate too much false alarms. This means that some daily activities are(More)
We present a view independent algorithm for 3D human gait recognition. The identification of the person is achieved using motion data obtained by our markerless 3D motion tracking algorithm. We report its tracking accuracy using ground-truth data obtained by a marker-based motion capture system. The classification is done using SVM built on the proposed(More)
This paper proposes a new algorithm called soft partitioning particle swarm optimization (SPPSO), which performs video-based markerless human pose tracking by optimizing a fitness function in a 31-dimensional search space. The fitness function is based on foreground segmentation and edges. SPPSO divides the optimization into two stages that exploit the(More)
This paper presents the application of a kernel particle filter for 3D body tracking in a video stream acquired from a single uncalibrated camera. Using intensity-based and color-based cues as well as an articulated 3D body model with shape represented by cylinders, a real-time body tracking in monocular cluttered image sequences has been realized. The(More)
This paper proposes the use of a particle filter with embedded particle swarm optimization as an efficient and effective way of dealing with 3d model-based human body tracking. A particle swarm optimization algorithm is utilized in the particle filter to shift the particles toward more promising configurations of the human model. The algorithm is shown to(More)
In this paper we present a vision system that performs tracking a human face in 3D. To achieve this we combine color and stereo cues to find likely image regions where face may exist. A greedy search algorithm examines for a face candidate focusing the action around the position of the face which was detected in the previous time step. The aim of the search(More)
