A Block-Based Human Model for Visual Surveillance
This paper presents BB6-HM, a block-based human model for real-time monitoring of a large number of visual events and states related to human activity analysis, which can be used as components of a library to describe more complex activities in such important areas as surveillance. BB6-HM is inspired by the proportionality rules commonly used in Visual Arts, i.e., for dividing the human silhouette into six rectangles of the same height. The major advantage of this proposal is that analysis of the human can be easily broken down into parts, which allows us to introduce more specific domain knowledge and to reduce the computational load. It embraces both frontal and lateral views, is a fast and scale-invariant method and a large amount of task-focused information can be extracted from it.
