In this paper we present our work on human action recognition in intelligent environments. We classify actions by looking at a time-sequence of silhouettes extracted from various camera images. By treating time as the third spatial dimension we generate so-called space-time shapes that contain rich information about the actions. We propose a novel approach for recognizing actions, by representing the shapes as 3D point clouds and estimating feature histograms for them. Preliminary results show that our method robustly derives different classes of actions, even in the presence of large variability in the data, coming from different persons at different time intervals.
