Representation of spatio-temporal properties of human body silhouette and human-to-ground relationship, significantly contribute to the fall detection process. So, we propose an approach to efficiently model the spatio-temporal features using fall motion vector. First, we construct a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) called fall motion mixture model (FMMM) using histogram of optical flow and motion boundary histogram features to implicitly capture motion attributes in both the fall and non-fall videos. The FMMM contains both fall and non-fall attributes resulting in a high-dimensional representation. In order to extract only the relevant attributes for a particular fall or non-fall videos, we perform factor analysis on FMMM to get a low dimensional representation known as fall motion vector. Using fall motion vector, we are able to efficiently identify fall events in varieties of scenarios, such as the narrow angle camera (Le2i dataset), wide angle camera (URFall dataset), and multiple cameras (Montreal dataset). In all these scenarios, we show that the proposed fall motion vector achieves better performance than the existing methods. © 2001-2012 IEEE.
