Abstract: Human body detection and pose estimation is useful for a wide variety of
applications and environments. Therefore a human body detection and pose
estimation system must be adaptable and customizable. This paper presents
such a system that extracts skeletons from RGB-D sensor data. The system
adapts on-line to dicult unstructured scenes taken from a moving camera
(since it does not require background subtraction) and benets from using
both color and depth data. It is customizable by virtue of requiring less
training data, having a clearly described training method, and a customizable
human kinematic model. Results show successful application to data from a
moving camera in cluttered indoor environments. This system is open-source,
encouraging reuse, comparison, and future research
