Abstract: In this contribution we present a silhouette based human motion estimation system. The system components contain silhouette extraction based on level sets, a correspondence module, which relates image data to model data and a pose estimation module. Experiments are done in a four camera setup and we estimate the model components with 21 degrees of freedom in two frames per second. Finally, we perform a comparison of the motion estimation system with a marker based tracking system to perform a quantitative error analysis. The results show the applicability of the system for marker-less sports movement analysis.
