Virtual PAT: A Virtual Personal Aerobics Trainer


A prototype system for implementing a virtual Personal Aerobics Trainer (PAT) is presented. Unlike workout video tapes or TV exercise shows, this system allows the user to create and personalize an aerobics session to meet the user's needs and desires. Various media technology and computer vision algorithms are used to enhance the interaction of a virtual instructor by enabling it to watch and talk to the user. Throughout the paper, we report the system components and discuss the advantages, problems, and extensions of the design.
