Visual Perception of Humans for Human-Computer Interaction
In order to build human-friendly supportive systems, such as human-computer interfaces, humanoid robots or smart envirtonments, these systems need to be enabled with the capabilities to perceive their users and the context in which they interact.
In my research I'm focusing on developing novel techniqes for the visual and audio-visual perception of humans, their activities, and in particular their interaction modalities. This includes work on person tracking, person identification, gesture recognition, estimation of
head pose and focus of attention and recognition of activities. Our perceptual components have been successfully applied in various scenarios such as multimodal human-robot interaction and building supportive smart environments. In this talk, I will give an overview
of the recent research activities of my group.
