Motion capture (mocap) technology is an efficient method for digitizing art-performances, and it is becoming a popular method for the preservation and dissemination of dances. However, stylistic variations of human motion are difficult to measure and cannot be directly extracted from the motion capture data itself. In this work, we present a framework based on Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) that aims to identify style qualities in motion and provides a mechanism for motion indexing using the four LMA components (Body, Effort, Shape, Space), which can also be subsequently used for intuitive motion retrieval. We have designed and implemented a prototype motion search engine in which users can perform queries using motion clips in a folk dance database. Results demonstrate that the proposed method can be used in place, or in combination with text-based queries, to enable more effective and flexible motion database search and retrieval. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.

Global optimization for motion estimation with applications to ultrasound videos of carotid artery plaques Murillo, S.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Soliz, P.; Barriga, S.; Loizou, Christos P.; Pattichis, Constantinos S. (2010)Motion estimation from digital video is an ill-posed problem that requires a regularization approach. Regularization introduces a smoothness constraint that can reduce the resolution of the velocity estimates. The problem ...
Atherosclerotic plaque motion analysis from ultrasound videos Murillo, S. E.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Loizou, Christos P.; Pattichis, Constantinos S.; Kyriacou, Efthyvoulos C.; Constantinides, Anthony G.; Nicolaïdes, Andrew N. (2006)In this paper, we describe a collection of algorithms that are used to provide motion trajectory estimates from atherosclerotic plaque ultrasound videos. Our approach is based on the use of four different optical flow ...
Emotion Analysis and Classification: Understanding the Performers' Emotions Using the LMA Entities Aristidou, Andreas; Charalambous, Panayiotis; Chrysanthou, Yiorgos L. (2015)The increasing availability of large motion databases, in addition to advancements in motion synthesis, has made motion indexing and classification essential for better motion composition. However, in order to achieve good ...
