There's a widely known need to revise current forms of healthcare provision. Of particular interest are sensing systems in the home, which have been central to several studies. This article presents an overview of this rapidly growing body of work, as well as the implications for machine learning, with an aim of uncovering the gap between the state of the(More)
Low-cost depth cameras, such as Microsoft Kinect, have completely changed the world of human-computer interaction through controller-free gaming applications. Depth data provided by the Kinect sensor presents several noise-related problems that have to be tackled to improve the accuracy of the depth data, thus obtaining more reliable game control platforms(More)
Low-cost systems that can obtain a high-quality foreground segmentation almost independently of the existing illumination conditions for indoor environments are very desirable, especially for security and surveillance applications. In this paper, a novel foreground segmentation algorithm that uses only a Kinect depth sensor is proposed to satisfy the(More)
This work addresses the challenge of analysing the quality of human movements from visual information which has use in a broad range of applications, from diagnosis and rehabilitation to movement optimisation in sports science. Traditionally, such assessment is performed as a binary classification between normal and abnormal by comparison against normal and(More)
We present a real-time RGB-D object tracker which manages occlusions and scale changes in a wide variety of scenarios. Its accuracy matches, and in many cases outper-forms, state-of-the-art algorithms for precision and it far exceeds most in speed. We build our algorithm on the existing colour-only KCF tracker which uses the 'kernel trick' to extend(More)
We present a new framework for vision-based estimation of calorific expenditure from RGB-D data-the first that is validated on physical gas exchange measurements and applied to daily living scenarios. Deriving a person's energy expenditure from sensors is an important tool in tracking physical activity levels for health and lifestyle monitoring. Most(More)
