Abstract

This paper suggested an image processing method using a multiple-colored suit for estimating complicated postures of a human body. One of the major problems on the posture estimation when using the silhouette image analysis is the overlap of the body parts' silhouettes. In order to solve this problem, the human wears the multiple-colored suit so that each body part has a different color from the other body parts. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method. It has confirmed that the complicated overlapped postures can be analyzed through the contour of the human's silhouette and the color information from the body segments that are taken using three directional cameras which are located at the front, left, and right side of the subject.
