In this study, a new system for computer vision-based recognition of human actions is presented. The proposed system uses videos as input. The approach is invariant of the location of the action and zoom levels, the appearance of the person, partial occlusions including self-occlusions and some viewpoint changes. It is robust against temporal length variations. Keypoints are tracked through time and the trajectories of tracked keypoints are used for interpreting the human action in the video. Then, features from videos are extracted. A group of features for describing a trajectory are proposed. Trajectories are clustered using these trajectory features. The clustered trajectories are used for describing an image sequence. Image sequence descriptors are the normalized histograms of the clusters of trajectories. At the final stage, the proposed system uses the descriptors of the image sequences in a supervised learning approach.
