A concise tutorial on human motion tracking and recognition with Microsoft Kinect
Zhao W B
This paper provides a concise tutorial on the Microsoft Kinect technology and the state of art research on human motion tracking and recognition with Microsoft Kinect. A pre-requisite for human motion recognition is feature extraction. There are two types of feature extraction methods: skeleton joint based, and depth/color image based. Given a set of feature vectors, a motion could be recognized using machine learning, direct comparison, or rule-based methods. We also outline future research directions on the Kinect technology.
