Human motion analysis is one of the active research areas in computer vision. The trend shifts from computing motion fields to determining actions. We present an action coding scheme based on a trajectory of features defined with respect to a part based coordinate system. The method does not require prior human model or special motion capture hardware. The features are extracted from images segmented in the form of silhouettes. The feature extraction step ignores 3D effects such as self occlusions or motion perpendicular to the viewing plane. These effects are later revealed in the trajectory analysis. We demonstrate preliminary experiments.

Visual analysis of human motion is one of the active research areas in computer vision. The trend shifts from computing motion fields to understanding actions. In this thesis, an action coding scheme based on trajectories of the features calculated with respect to a part based coordinate system is presented. The part based coordinate system is formed using an axis based representation. The features are extracted from images segmented in the form of silhouettes. We present some preliminary experiments that d...
Human action recognition for various input characteristics using 3 dimensional residual networks
Tüfekci, Gülin; Ulusoy, İlkay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Action recognition using deep neural networks is a far-reaching research area which has been commonly utilized in applications such as statistical analysis of human behavior, detecting abnormalities using surveillance cameras and robotic systems. Previous studies have been performing researches to propose new machine learning algorithms and deep network architectures to obtain higher recognition accuracy levels. Instead of suggesting a network resulting in small accuracy gain, this thesis focuses on evaluat...
Object Recognition via Local Patch Labelling
Ulusoy, İlkay (2005-03-01)
In recent years the problem of object recognition has received considerable attention from both the machine learning and computer vision communities. The key challenge of this problem is to be able to recognize any member of a category of objects in spite of wide variations in visual appearance due to variations in the form and colour of the object, occlusions, geometrical transformations (such as scaling and rotation), changes in illumination, and potentially non-rigid deformations of the object itself. In...
Moving hot object detection in airborne thermal videos
Kaba, Utku; Akar, Gözde; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
In this thesis, we present an algorithm for vision based detection of moving objects observed by IR sensors on a moving platform. In addition we analyze the performance of different approaches in each step of the algorithm. The proposed algorithm is composed of preprocessing, feature detection, feature matching, homography estimation and difference image analysis steps. First, a global motion estimation based on planar homography model is performed in order to compensate the motion of the sensor and moving ...
An FPGA based high performance optical flow hardware design for computer vision applications
Gultekin, Gokhan Koray; Saranlı, Afşar (2013-05-01)
Optical Flow (OF) information is used in higher level vision tasks in a variety of computer vision applications. However, its use in resource constrained applications such as small-scale mobile robotic platforms is limited because of the high computational complexity involved. The inability to compute the OF vector field in real-time is the main drawback which prevents these applications to efficiently utilize some successful techniques from the computer vision literature. In this work, we present the desig...
