Marker-less Motion Capture with 2 Fisheye Cameras
For our class project we are re-implementing a technique based on a paper developed by Max Plank Institute for Informatics and Intel Visual Computing Insititute. The concept is to track, in real time, the 3D kinematics of the human body during arbitrary activities based on a portable sensing system using only 2 fish-eye cameras. Essentially this project aims to build off of an existing implementation to create accurate human motion capture systems without the expensive overhead infrastructure costs and limiting capture volume of traditional optical marker-based systems (Vicon, OptiTrack, etc.). Our final project paper can be read here.
