We present a novel approach to modelling the non-linear and time-varying dynamics of human motion, using statistical methods to capture the characteristic motion patterns that exist in typical human activities. Our method is based on automatically clustering the body pose space into connected regions exhibiting similar dynamical characteristics, modelling the dynamics in each region as a Gaussian autoregressive process. Activities that would require large numbers of exemplars in example based methods are covered by comparatively few motion models. Different regions correspond roughly to different action-fragments and our class inference scheme allows for smooth transitions between these, thus making it useful for activity recognition tasks. The method is used to track activities including walking, running, etc., using a planar 2D body model. Its effectiveness is demonstrated by its success in tracking complicated motions like turns, without any key frames or 3D information.
