Alcoverro M, López-Méndez A, Casas J, Pardàs M. A real-time body tracking system for smart rooms. In ICME - 2011 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo. 2011. pp. 1–6.


We present a real-time human body tracking system for a single user in a Smart Room scenario. In this paper we propose a novel system that involves a silhouette-based cost function using variable windows, a hierarchical optimization method, parallel implementations of pixel-based algorithms and efficient usage of a low-cost hardware structure. Results in a Smart Room setup are presented.
