Recognizing activities

  title={Recognizing activities},
  author={Ramprasad Polana and Randal C. Nelson},
The recognition of repetitive movements characteristic of walking people, galloping horses, or ying birds i s a r outine function of the human visual system. It has been demonstrated that humans can recognize such activity solely on the basis of motion information. We demonstrate a general computational method f o r r ecog-nizing such movements in real image sequences using what is essentially template matching in a motion feature s p ace c oupled w i t h a t e chnique for detecting and… CONTINUE READING
