Ability to recognize human activities will enhance the capabilities of a robot that interacts with humans. However automatic detection of human activities could be challenging due to the individual nature of the activities. In this paper, we present human activity detection model that uses only 3-D skeleton features generated from an RGB-D sensor (Microsoft Kinect). To infer the human activities, we implemented Gaussian Mixture Modal (GMM) based Hidden Markov model(HMM). GM outputs of the HMM were effectively able to capture multimodel nature of 3D positions of each skeleton joint. We tested our model in a publicly available data-set that consists of twelve different daily activities performed by four different people.The proposed model recorded recognition recall accuracy of 84% with previously seen people and 78% with previously unseen people.
