Recognition and Tracking of the Members of a Moving Human Body
We present a method to solve the human silhouette tracking problem using 18 major human points. We used: a simple 2D model for the human silhouette, a linear prediction technique for initializing major points search, geometry anthropometric constraints for determining the search area and color measures for matching human body parts. In addition, we propose a method to solve the problem of human members recognition and 18 major human points detection using silhouette. This result can be used to initialize a human tracking algorithm for real time applications. Our main purpose is to develop a low computation cost algorithm, which can be used independently of camera motion. The output of the tracking algorithm is the position of 18 major human points and a 2D human body extraction. In cases of low quality imaging conditions or low background contrast, the result may be worst. For these cases we defined an appropriate criterion concerning tracking ability.
