Understanding Human Body Language from Environmental Sensors and Body Sensors

Ruzena Bajcsy

I investigate Human body language. There is plenty of evidence both from anthropology and psychology that people communicate very much with their body. For this purpose I use visual sensors in the environment to capture the body motion and I have a couple of students who are trying to interpret the motion in this body language. We use the teleimmersive environment since we can communicate locally but also geographically
