Abstract This paper proposes a novel dynamic sparsity-based classification scheme to analyze various interaction actions between persons. To address the occlusion problem, this paper represents an action in an over-complete dictionary to makes errors (caused by lighting changes or occlusions) sparsely appear in the training library if the error cases are well collected. Because of this sparsity, it is robust to occlusions and lighting changes. In addition, a novel Hamming distance classification (HDC) scheme is proposed to classify action events to various types. Because the nature of Hamming code is highly tolerant to noise, the HDC scheme is also robust to environmental changes. The difficulty of complicated action modeling can be easily tackled by adding more examples to the over-complete dictionary. More importantly, the HDC scheme is very efficient and suitable for real-time applications because no minimization process is involved to calculate the reconstruction error.
