This paper proposes a new human action recognition method which deals with recognition task in a quite different way when compared with traditional methods which use sequence matching scheme. Our method compresses a sequence of an action into a Motion History Image (MHI) on which low-dimensional features are extracted using subspace analysis methods. Unlike other methods which use a sequence consisting of several frames for recognition, our method uses only a MHI per action sequence for recognition. Obviously, our method avoids the complexity as well as the large computation in sequence matching based methods. Encouraging experimental results on a widely used database demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2008 IEEE.
