We address the problem of estimating the position and motion of a human arm in 3D without any constraints on its behavior and without the use of special markers. We model the arm as two truncated right-circular cones connected with spherical joints. We propose to use a recursive estimator for arm position, and to provide the estimator with error signals obtained by comparing the projected estimated arm position with that of the actual arm in the image. The system is demonstrated and tested on a real image sequence.

Abstract

We address the problem of estimating the position and motion of a human arm in 3D without any constraints on its behavior and without the use of special markers. We model the arm as two truncated right-circular cones connected with spherical joints. We propose to use a recursive estimator for arm position, and to provide the estimator with error signals obtained by comparing the projected estimated arm position with that of the actual arm in the image. The system is demonstrated and tested on a real image sequence.
