    PhD PROJECT - STUDENT WANTED

    Keywords: biomechanics, computer science, image analysis, tracking, graphics

    THE PROJECT

    The Automated Tracking of Three-dimensional Human Movement

    The idea is to develop an automated procedure for tracking three-dimensional
    human movement using two or more recorded video images.

    This will be done using a three-dimensional graphics model of the human body
    which will be positioned and oriented in order to optimise the match between
    the model image and the recorded video image. The graphics model has already
    been developed and has the facility to be customised using measurements
    taken on an individual. An example of the simulation model can be seen at:
