Static human body postures recognition in video sequences using the belief theory
This paper presents a system that can automatically recognize four different static human body postures in video sequences. The considered postures are standing, sitting, squatting, and lying. The recognition is based on data fusion using the belief theory. The data come from the persons 2D segmentation and from their face localization. It consists in distance measurements relative to a reference posture ("Da Vinci posture": standing, arms stretched horizontally). The segmentation is based on an adaptive background removal algorithm. The face localization process uses skin detection based on color information with an adaptive thresholding. The efficiency and the limits of the recognition system are highlighted thanks to the analysis of a great number of results. This system allows real-time processing.
