Understanding human activity from video is one of the central problems in the field of computer vision, driven by a wide variety of applications in communications, entertainment, security, commerce, and athletics. This unique text/reference provides a coherent and comprehensive overview of all aspects of video analysis of humans. Broad in coverage and accessible in style, the text presents original perspectives collected from preeminent researchers gathered from across the world. In addition to presenting state-of-the-art research, the book reviews the historical origins of the different existing methods, and predicts future trends and challenges. Topics and features: With a Foreword by Professor Larry Davis of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies, USAContains contributions from an international selection of leading authorities in the fieldIncludes an extensive glossaryDiscusses the problems associated with detecting and tracking people through camera networksExamines topics related to determining the time-varying 3D pose of a person from videoInvestigates the representation and recognition of human actionsReviews the most important applications of activity recognition, from biometrics and surveillance, to sports and driver assistanceWith its all-encompassing scope, this essential reference will be of great value not only to graduate students in computer vision, but also to all researchers and professionals interested in systems for the visual analysis of humans. Dr. Thomas B. Moeslund is an Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture, Design & Media Technology at Aalborg University, Denmark. Dr. Adrian Hilton is Professor and Head of the Visual Media Research Group at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. Dr. Volker Krüger is an Associate Professor and Head of the Computer Vision and Machine Intelligence Laboratory at Aalborg University. Dr. Leonid Sigal is a Research Scientist at Disney Research, Pittsburgh, PA USA.
