3D Model Based Gesture Acquisition Using a Single Camera

Patrick Horain and Mayank Bomb

Abstract :

We present a method for 3D human motion capture using a single camera, without markers and without a priori knowledge on gestures. It is based on registering a 3D articulated model on color images with respect to biomechanical constraints. Gestures regularization is discussed as a way to cope with projection ambiguities. Computation is reduced by registering only the moving parts of the body.
