Human Motion Data: Applications, Challenges, and Our Research

The rapid development of motion capturing technologies has caused an explosion in the usage of human motion data in different fields. For example, motion data are analyzed in sports to compare performance aspects of athletes, in security research to identify special-interest persons, in health care to determine the success of rehabilitative treatments, and in computer animation to synthesize realistic motions. In the first part of this presentation, we briefly outline existing motion capturing technologies utilized in the specific sport, medical and military applications. We also introduce the main research challenges, mainly from the perspectives of similarity-based comparison and motion retrieval. In the second part, we present our novel method for effective comparison of complex spatio-temporal motion data. We also show a web demo application for retrieving similar movements in real time.
