In this paper we propose a view based approach to recognize humans when engaged in some activity. The width of the outer contour of the binarized silhouette of a walking person is chosen as the image feature. A set of exemplars that occur during an activity cycle is chosen for each individual. Using these exemplars a lower dimensional Frame to Exemplar Distance (FED) vector is generated. A continuous HMM is trained using several such FED vector sequences. This methodology serves to compactly… CONTINUE READING
