A daily behavior enabled hidden Markov model for human behavior understanding
This paper presents a Hierarchical Context Hidden Markov Model (HC-HMM) for behavior understanding from video streams in a nursing center. The proposed HC-HMM infers elderly behaviors through three contexts which are spatial, activities, and temporal context. By considering the hierarchical architecture, HC-HMM builds three modules composing the three components, reasoning in the primary and the secondary relationship. The spatial contexts are defined from the spatial structure, so that it is placed as the primary inference contexts. The temporal duration is associated to elderly activities, so activities are placed in the following of spatial contexts and the temporal duration is placed after activities. Between the spatial context reasoning and behavior reasoning of activities, a modified duration HMM is applied to extract activities. According to this design, human behaviors different in spatial contexts would be distinguished in first module. The behaviors different in activities ...
