Abstract

The video-based motion capture system uses cheap equipments, like digital cameras and personal computers, to track a human motion without any sensors or markers attached to the body. This topic has a wide application in areas such as smart surveillance, human computer interaction and athletic performance analysis etc., and it becomes a hot topic of computer vision in recent years. Because of the complexity of the problem and lack of comprehension of human vision system essence, visual tracking is still hard in computer vision.
