Currently we are researching how to extract pose information from a sparse set of moving features. This work is inspired from psychophisical experiments using the Moving Light Display (MLD) where it has been shown that a small set of moving points attached to the key joints of a person could convey a wealth of information to an observer about the person being viewed, such as their mood or gender. Unlike the typical MLD's used in the physchophysics community ours are automatically generated by applying a standard feature tracker to a sequence of images.
