Running Leeds pose estimation code

I am trying to find a reliable pose estimation sample out there and have run across several codebases on github. wg-perception being one of them. I ended up running a codebase that I found and while it compiles and runs, the joints that are detected using the model are far from great.

I found this online:

And while I see the annotations on the images, I was hoping the resulting detections would look like that ;-)

My goal is to detect the joints of the human body from still images. I know this is a big issue, but it would really be fantastic.

Thanks, John

Well, HERE is a list of the best that have been tested on this particular database. Go down the list and see if they provide code. And it looks like the best result (on the bottom, for some reason) does provide both training code, running code, and a pre-trained model. Hope that helps.

Google. It's your friend.

Hi, thanks for the answer, I have found this dataset before and I guess my struggle is HOW to use it ;-) I think this would be fantastic, and have downloaded the evaluation toolkit but I guess my question is how to use the dataset to detect positions. Im quite new to this so any help is appreciated. Im trying to get this running with C++ not matlab if possible.

I'm afraid you are totally mis-understanding what is at that link. The evaluation dataset just contains data and ground truth, with functions to test how close your estimation is to the truth. There is no method for doing the estimation. That would be at any of the individual sites linked in the ranking.

Thats what I thought :-) So here is my issue. I have the need to detect body points for my application. I am trying to find code that is written in C++ that will allow me to do this. I have found a few libraries that contain code to detect points using different models.

I would like to find out how to detect the body points in a 2d image. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks again for your help! John

And they can be gotten to from that page. Seriously, there's at least two, including the highest ranked one. Newell et al is available both in pre-trained and trainable forms. Ok, I just checked. The top 5 all provide their code. You have no excuse.

Ohhh, on the results page. Got it. I do see the code projects now. Was completely missing it. So although its not C++ Ill try my best at figuring out how to run Torch7. Was hoping to use opencv and c++. Never touched torch before. Ill give it a shot!
