Many different visual features can be used for analysis and annotation of sports video material. Here we present a periodic motion feature descriptor that can discriminate between different sports types that contain periodic motion. The experimental results, using video material from the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, show that the proposed periodic motion… (More)
In this paper, we propose an algorithm for human running behaviour recognition. A novel motion feature is extracted. The human running cue is then computed by applying a Bayesian classifier. Experimental results based on the Barcelona Olympic Games image sequences show the benefits of the proposed algorithm.
