Gravity as a Reference for Estimating a Person’s Height from Video

Tags: computer-vision, physics, pose, technical | Paper

I love this one for the awesome idea they’ve had. They want to solve a reasonable problem - how tall is the person in this photo (here, actually, a video). They’re observation is that if they ask the person to jump, then they can use information about gravity as supporting evidence to estimate the height! It’s such a neat idea.
