FORENSOR: Action Recognition

Action Recognition via Motion Analysis In this method, the first step of performing real-time object tracking is based on background subtraction. Initially, the algorithm grabs an image of the background, assuming that the frame is empty of subjects. Subsequently, while capturing each new frame, the background is subtracted by the newly acquired image and the Read More …

Sensorimotor Object Recognition 3D Dataset

The CERTH-SOR3D dataset contains 20830 instances of human-object interactions. The capturing process involved three synchronized Microsoft Kinect v2 sensors (three capturing views) under controlled environmental conditions. The available data contain 1) RGB videos (1920×1080 pixels ), 2) depth map sequences (512×424 pixels). and c) 3D optical flow fields. Visit the official site
