Extraction and Description of Moving Human Body by Periodic Motion Analysis

Extraction and Description of Moving Human Body by Periodic Motion Analysis
Extraction and Description of Moving Human Body by Periodic Motion Analysis
We describe a new method for extraction and description of a moving human body by periodic motion analysis from image sequences. The moving human body is detected by background subtraction using an edge difference image with noise filtering. Then, histogram projection profiles of the edge difference image are used to determine the position of the human body. This method is improved by periodic motion analysis using projection profiles in a moving window. The periodicity of human gait motion is described by a gait state diagram and primitive during a gait cycle. The usefulness of proposed method is demonstrated in experiments with comparison of other methods.

Abstract

We describe a new method for extraction and description of a moving human body by periodic motion analysis from image sequences. The moving human body is detected by background subtraction using an edge difference image with noise filtering. Then, histogram projection profiles of the edge difference image are used to determine the position of the human body. This method is improved by periodic motion analysis using projection profiles in a moving window. The periodicity of human gait motion is described by a gait state diagram and primitive during a gait cycle. The usefulness of proposed method is demonstrated in experiments with comparison of other methods.
