Sensing of human motion is very important for humancomputer interactive applications such as virtual reality, gesture recognition, and communication. A vision system is suitable for human-computer interaction since this involves passive sensing and the system can estimate the motion of the user without any discomfort for the user. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for fast posture estimation of the user from an image sequence by using the position information of the hands and head. Our… CONTINUE READING
