    Abstract

    This paper proposes a non-contact type method for estimating human body postures. One of the major problems on the posture estimation using the silhouette image analysis is the overlapping of the body parts' silhouettes. In order to solve this problem, this paper proposes a method for estimating the posture of a human wearing a multiple-colored suit based on color information processing. By analyzing the contour of the human's silhouette, the method judges whether feature points are occluded by another body parts. If the occlusions occurs, color region segmentation is performed in order to know which region is frontal. The feature point in the frontal region is located in the skeleton of the region. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
