Abstract: A novel algorithm has been proposed for recognizing human actions using a combination of shape descriptors. Every human action is considered as a 3D space time shape and the shape descriptors based on the 3D Euclidean distance transform and the Radon transform are used for its representation. The Euclidean distance transform gives a suitable internal representation where the interior values correspond to the action performed. By taking the gradient of this distance transform, the space time shape is divided into different number of levels with each level representating a coarser version of the original space time shape. Then, at each level and at each frame, the Radon transform is applied from where action features are extracted. The action features are the R-Transform feature set which gives the posture variations of the human body with respect to time and the R-Translation vector set which gives the translatory variation. The combination of these action features is used in a nearest neighbour classifier for action recognition. (More)
