This article describes a method to track 3D articulated structures from a monocular perspective image sequence using a particle filter. This structure is composed of a set of linked degenerated quadrics (cones), which are truncated, by pairs of planes also modelled as degenerated quadrics. Joints containing one or more degrees of freedom connect this set of truncated cones. The method is based upon the estimation of the contours of the structures silhouette projected on the image plane, to… CONTINUE READING
