Human Behavior Understanding with Wide Area Sensing Floors

Abstract: The research on innovative and natural interfaces aims at developing devices able to capture and understand the human behavior without the need of a direct interaction. In this paper we propose and describe a framework based on a sensing floor device. The pressure field generated by people or objects standing on the floor is captured and analyzed. Local and global features are computed by a low level processing unit and sent to high level interfaces. The framework can be used in different applications, such as entertainment, education or surveillance. A detailed description of the sensing element and the processing architectures is provided, together with some sample applications developed to test the device capabilities.
