In this project, we investigate machine learning algorithms for the purpose of real-time 3D human pose estimation in a hospital monitoring scenario. Patients are typically covered with a blanket and the bed is cluttered with books, laptops and other everyday objects. This makes the task more challenging than background-free human pose estimation. With the constraint of day and night monitoring capacity, we have recently published a method based on depth data which will be presented at MICCAI 2016, see link to the paper below. On this project page, you can also find the used dataset and training code. For further information, please contact Felix Achilles.
