Human motion analysis is receiving increasing attention from
computer vision researchers. This interest is motivated by a wide
spectrum of applications, such as athletic performance analysis,
surveillance, man­machine interfaces, content-based image storage
and retrieval, and video conferencing. This paper gives an overview
of the various tasks involved in motion analysis of the human body.
We focus on three major areas related to interpreting human mo-
tion: (1) motion analysis involving human body parts, (2) tracking a
moving human from a single view or multiple camera perspectives,
and (3) recognizing human activities from image sequences. Motion
analysis of human body parts involves the low-level segmentation
of the human body into segments connected by joints and recov-
ers the 3D structure of the human body using its 2D projections
