Action Recognition from Depth Sequences Using Depth Motion Maps-Based Local Binary Patterns Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2015 IEEE. This paper presents a computationally efficient method for action recognition from depth video sequences. It employs the so called depth motion maps (DMMs) from three projection views (front, side and top) to capture motion cues and uses local binary patterns (LBPs) to gain a compact feature representation. Two types of fusion consisting of feature-level fusion and decision-level fusion are considered. In the feature-level fusion, LBP features from three DMMs are merged before classification while in the decision-level fusion, a soft decision-fusion rule is used to combine the classification outcomes. The introduced method is evaluated on two standard datasets and is also compared with the existing methods. The results indicate that it outperforms the existing methods and is able to process depth video sequences in real-time.
