3D Human posture sequence estimation from single or multiple image sequences is essential in many applications, such as vision-based sport coaching and physical rehabilitation. However, 3D posture sequence cannot be accurately estimated from single image sequence due to depth ambiguity and self-occlusion, and pre-calibration is often required when estimating 3D posture sequence from multiple image sequences. In this paper, we present an algorithm to accurately estimate 3D human posture sequence…
