Motion Correction in Physical Action of Human Body Applied to Yogasana

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 177)


Here, we proposed framework for human motion analysis and efficient representation of motion as well as human body in the form of curve for motion correction. In our proposal Human body is represented by curves for which curve control points are identified, that may or may not be on body curve. Body motion is represented by motion trajectories for each control point. Control point motion is also represented by curves. As system proposes error correction in Yogasana, expert’s motion body curves and control point motion trajectory paths and practitioner’s motion are compared and error correction is suggested to practitioner. Framework can be applied for all scenes where standard requirements should meet, like sports, acting, physical exercise, and traditional dances.
