In this paper, a human activity recognition system which automatically detects human behaviors in video is presented. The solution presented in this paper uses a directed graphical model with proposed by the authors Evenly Distributed Points (EDP) method. The experimental results prove efficient representation of the human activity and high score of recognition.
