Abstract

The goal of our study is to propose systems that can support motor learning and coaching for users (or teachers) without requiring any detailed knowledge of sports. We propose a system that can visualize similarities in “ form ” as the term applies to sports (e.g., batting form, hurdling form) and an instruction method that will automatically be suitable for the person using it. As a step toward this goal, in this paper we propose a framework for the similarity visualization that is based on similarities in form and optimal image features for classifying similarities in target forms in sports actions that require different lengths of time to perform. We performed form classification experiments with the aim of determining appropriate image features in order to visualize form similarities. The highest classification precision was obtained with BoVW by applying a sliding window to back hip circle videos.
