Human Motion Capture and Analysis
We are particularly interested in the capture and analysis of human motion, which consists in recovering the motion parameters of the human body and/or human body parts, such as the hand. In the past researchers have concentrated on recovering constrained motions such as human walking and running. We are interested in recovering unconstrained motion. The problem is difficult because of the large number of degrees of freedom, the small size of some body parts, the ambiguity of some motions, the self-occlusions, etc. Human motion capture methods have a wide range of applications: human monitoring, surveillance, gesture analysis, motion recognition, computer animation, etc.
