  • Abstract:
    This paper presents a new method for human activity recognition using depth sequences. Each depth sequence is represented by three depth motion maps (DMMs) from three projection views (front, side and top) to capture motion cues. A feature extraction method utilizing spatial and orientational auto-correlations of image local gradients is introduced to extract features from DMMs. The gradient local auto-correlations (GLAC) method employs second order statistics (i.e., auto-correlations) to capture richer information from images than the histogram-based methods (e.g., histogram of oriented gradients) which use first order statistics (i.e., histograms). Based on the extreme learning machine, a fusion framework that incorporates feature-level fusion into decision-level fusion is proposed to effectively combine the GLAC features from DMMs. Experiments on the MSRAction3D and MSRGesture3D datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed activity recognition algorithm.
