SICSA research project - Vijay John

Vijay John is doing a PhD project with the Computer Vision and Image Processing group of the School of Computing at the University of Dundee, focusing on marker-less human motion capture and recognition. Vijay’s system tracks a “skeleton” model of the human body in motion, using synchronised sequences from several video cameras, with and without assuming what action is being performed – e.g. running or jumping. Marker-less human motion capture from video sequences is a major problem in computer vision, with applications in virtual character animation, medical posture analysis, surveillance and human-computer interaction, etc., and the project attempts to accurately estimate and recognise human actions without the need for an expensive commercial marker-based motion capture system.
