This paper discusses an approach to human action recognition via local feature tracking and robust estimation of background motion. The main contribution is a robust feature extraction algorithm based on KLT tracker and SIFT as well as a method for estimating dominant planes in the scene. Multiple interest point detectors are used to provide large number of(More)
Severe internal carotid artery stenosis or occlusion is considered to be one of the important causes of stroke. The authors created a complete unilateral carotid artery occlusion model in 15 Sprague-Dawley rats, induced severe hypotension for at least 36 minutes by exsanguination with the target mean arterial pressure being equal or less than 35 mmHg, and(More)
An efficient application of eigenspace technique to recognize human behaviors is described. The present paper investigates two types of recognition, i.e., recognition of an unknown human posture and a particular behavior by identifying human postures among several behaviors. A number of different posture sets from some selected behaviors create universal(More)
The factorization method is a technique for recovering 3-D shape of an undeformable object without using camera parameters. The technique is extended to an efficient method in this paper for recovering 3-D motion of a deformable object, i.e., a human. The proposed system is composed of three fixed video cameras which take video images of a human motion.(More)
Linear scale-space is considered to be a modern bottom-up tool in computer vision. The American and European vision community, however, is unaware of the fact that it has already been axiomatically derived in 1959 in a Japanese paper by Taizo Iijima. This result formed the starting point of vast linear scale-space research in Japan ranging from various(More)
The motion history image (MHI) approach is a view-based temporal template method which is simple but robust in representing movements and is widely employed by various research groups for action recognition, motion analysis and other related applications. In this paper, we provide an overview of MHI-based human motion recognition techniques and(More)
SUMMARY This paper proposes an efficient technique for human motion recognition based on motion history images and an eigenspace technique. In recent years, human motion recognition has become one of the most popular research fields. It is expected to be applied in a security system , man-machine communication, and so on. In the proposed technique, we use(More)
Gaussian scale-space is considered to be a modern bottom-up tool in computer vision. The Amer-ican and European vision community, however, is unaware of the fact that Gaussian scale-space has already been axiomatically derived in 1959 in a Japanese paper by Taizo Iijima. This result formed the starting point of an entire world of linear scale-space research(More)
