Human body pose inference from monocular images

Not only detecting the presence of persons on an image, but also estimating their body pose configuration is a challenging task, even more when only monocular images are available, involving the lack of contextual cues such as motion or time repetitive patterns. We propose the usage of Pattern Recognition techniques and part-based detection methods, together with probabilistic models in order to infer the human body pose from 2D visual information, regarding prior knowledge models
