In this paper, we propose a new effective and robust framework to recognize human actions from depth map sequence. Firstly, 3D motion trail model (3DMTM) is extracted to represent the temporal motion information. Then, two effective heterogeneous features are proposed to descried actions more comprehensive based on 3DMTM. By computing Multilayer Histograms of Oriented Gradient (MHOG) on 3DMTM, 3DMTM-MHOG is obtained to describe local detail information of different actions. Combining Gist and 3DMTM, we can get 3DMTM-Gist to model holistic structural feature of actions. The feature-level fusion method is utilized to merge two descriptors to form the final feature. Lastly, support vector machine (SVM) classification is used for multi-class action recognition. Experimental results on public depth action dataset (MSR Action3D dataset) show that our method is superior to the state-of-the-art methods.
With the evolution and spread of motion capture system , human motion data can be obtained and saved in a variety of forms. Due to the huge amounts of human motion data, we need a more effective method to analyze for the target motion sequence. In this paper, an efficient system is presented for aligning motion based on the similarity of the motion data distribution, the process of analysis system includes two primary phases: offline motion database building and online aligning. We will get a result of similarity matching which is processed to describe corresponding relationship between two motion sequences. As a method to measure motion similarity, segmented Dynamic Time Warping algorithm is explored to support the aligning matches. The experimental results show that it's precise and efficient to align motion segments, finally we programmed the user interface based on the proposed system.
Skeleton-based methods have been proposed to detect and recognize meaningful human motion. It is known that most of them must contain some parameters. To achieve better recognition performance, various evolutionary schemes have been applied to select the optimal parameters in each phase of these human recognition methods. Experimental evaluations of various parameters, in terms of action recognition performance, should be done for obtaining the optimal parameter. In this paper, we propose an adaptive skeleton-based human action recognition system which can automatically adjust the experimental parameters according to the input data. We first extract some spatiotemporal local features by obtaining position differences of joints, which models actions over time. Then a two-layer affinity propagation (AP) algorithm is employed to select crucial postures. Our experiment results demonstrates that the proposed method works well for different dataset.
In this paper, we propose a novel feature extraction method for face recognition based on two dimensional fractional Fourier transform (2D-FrFT). First, we extract the phase information of facial image in 2D-FrFT, which is called the generalized phase spectra (GPS). Then, we present an improved two-dimensional separability judgment (I2DSJ) to select appropriate order parameters for discrete fractional Fourier transform. Finally, multiple orders’ generalized phase spectrum bands (MGPSB) fusion is proposed. In order to make full use of the discriminative information from different orders for face recognition, the proposed approach merges different orders’ generalized phase spectra (GPS) of 2D-FrFT. The proposed method is no need to construct the subspace through the feature extraction methods and has less computation cost. Experimental results on the public face databases demonstrate that our method outperforms the representative methods.
In recent years, fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) which contains both spatial and frequency information has been a hot topic. Image registration (IR), as an important preprocessing procedure, is very promising to be implemented on FRFT domain. A novel method based on the properties of FRFT and conventional phase correlation technique is proposed in this paper. This method not only can get more accurate results than previous FRFT-based methods, but also avoids the iterative operation, which greatly reduces the computation complexity. Simulation results prove the proposed superiority than existing methods based on FRFT.
