Abstract

Objective Human action recognition is a hot topic in computer vision. The recognition of human actions from unconstrained videos is difficult because of complex background, illumination variation and camera motion. An improved dense trajectory-based approach is proposed to address such problem. Dense optical flow is utilized to track the scale invariant feature transform keypoints at multiple spatial scales. The histogram of oriented gradient,histogram of optical flow,and motion boundary histogram are employed to depict the trajectory efficiently. To eliminate the influence of camera motions, the consistence indirection is used to improve the robustness of trajectory. The Fisher vector model is utilized to compute one Fisher vector for each descriptor separately, and then the linear support vector machine is employed for classification.Experimental results on KTH and YouTube datasets demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can effectively recognize human actions.
