Abstract

In human health and performance studies, there is a need to detect, track and describe human subjects in real-time and in three-dimensional (3D) space. The work presented here is motivated by the problem of detecting human subjects in physical spaces, reconstructing their location in 3D, describing their spectral characteristics at each 3D location, and rendering 3D and spectral characteristics in real time. In this paper, we address the problem of integrating thermal infrared (IR) cameras and visible spectral cameras so that the 3D and spectral characteristics can be acquired in real time. We report performance tradeoffs associated with the integration of thermal-infrared and visible spectrum cameras and the discuss implications of our design for human health and performance studies.
