Mivia Action Dataset

The dataset

The Mivia Action dataset is composed by 7 high-level actions performed by 14 subjects (7 males and 7 females). All the subjects performed 2 repetitions of each action and each action has a variable length, depending on the nature of the action itself.
The images have been acquired by using a Kinect sensor. In particular, the following images have been acquired for each sequence:

  • Depth Image
  • Depth Background

The actions

More information about the considered actions are shown in the table below.

Opening a jar 2 secs
Drinking 3 secs
Sleeping 3 secs
Random Movements 11 secs
Stopping 7 secs
Interacting with a table 3 secs
Sitting 3 secs

Some examples

A frame for the actions Drinking, Sitting and Brushing teeth are shown in the following:
