This paper presents an approach to build a 3D human-body model from uncali brated monocular video sequences. Using an orthographic projection model for the camera and a generic human body model, we constitute a 2D-3D conver sion scheme to generate a 3D skeletal model from the 2D image domain. The complete 3D geometry and kinematics information of a human being can be ex tracted without any a-priori information about the camera system or the person involved. Our promising experimental results can accurately reconstruct the hu man motion trajectory. The system can be utilized for an effective human-motion capture/analysis and a 3D skeleton reconstruction of deformable objects.
