For many human-robot interaction applications, accurate localization of the human, and in particular the endpoints such as the head, hands and feet, is crucial. In this paper, we propose a new Local Shape Context Descriptor specifically for describing the shape features of the endpoint body parts. The descriptor is computed from edge images obtained from depth data generated by a time-of-flight sensor. The proposed descriptor encodes the distance from a reference point to the nearest edges in… CONTINUE READING
