Abstract: We present a system for capturing human motions based on video data from multiple cameras. It realizes a 3-dimensional voxel-based reconstruction of the human together with an estimation of the pose of his complete body in each frame. The use of an underlying kinematic skeleton together with an idealized geometric model can guarantee a valid pose even in the face of occlusions caused by the incomplete spatial information gained from the cameras. The data-parallel nature of the used algorithms makes them well-suited for the implementation on modern graphics hardware. In this way the motion can be captured in real-time on a single PC despite the computation of a reconstruction accurate enough for a high quality pose estimation.
