Low-cost accurate skeleton tracking based on fusion of kinect and wearable inertial sensors (2014)

Abstract In this paper, we present a novel multi-sensor fusion method to build a human skeleton. We propose to fuse the joint po- sition information obtained from the popular Kinect sensor with more precise estimation of body segment orientations provided by a small number of wearable inertial sensors. The use of inertial sensors can help to address many of the well known limitations of the Kinect sensor. The precise calcu- lation of joint angles potentially allows the quantification of movement errors in technique training, thus facilitating the use of the low-cost Kinect sensor for accurate biomechani- cal purposes e.g. the improved human skeleton could be used in visual feedback-guided motor learning, for example. We compare our system to the gold standard Vicon optical mo- tion capture system, proving that the fused skeleton achieves a very high level of accuracy.
