Current information about this course will be kept on a CS 795 web page:
Study of techniques for measurement of human movement. Topics include:
Many practical techniques will be considered. Class work will
include reading and presenting technical papers on human movement. The class will ocassionally meet at the Robotics Laboratory for practical work. A programming project is required.
