This paper describes a system for action recognition with a single camera. Firstly, we use a two-layered background subtraction, which is based on both chromaticity and gradient, to extract human contours from the frame sequence captured by camera. This subtraction helps us remove shadows from foreground and get a good contour for recognition. Then we parameterize a human posture with a model called star skeleton. Each posture is represented as five vectors by this model. To classify every… CONTINUE READING
