Motion capture (mocap) is the process of recording the motion of human. In film production and video game industries, it refers to recording motion of human actors, and using that information to animate character models in 2D or 3D animation. As number of sensors increase, large number of data needs to be stored and transmitted.
Reducing data size by compression is always an important topic. Besides, the depth map camera which can be used to generate mocap data becomes more and more popular nowadays, it reduces the cost to develop new mocap application. This talk will (i) simply introduce motion capture, (ii) data recovery due to transmission and occlusion problem, (iii) techniques to understand and reduce the data, and (iv) application on fall detection and human computer interaction.
