Abstract:
    We aim to do human pose estimation using deep learning. Our solution will tell from a single 2D RGB image about your posture abnormality based on the skeletal information extracted from the image
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Human posture recognition is gaining increasing attention in the field of computer vision due to its promising applications in the area of personal health care. With the development of computer vision techniques,it is possible to analyze human condition automatically by recognition of human posture.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Posture can damage your health in many ways. Just to name a few, change in spinal curve, poor digestion, increased chances of cardiovascular issues, varicose veins and back pain would make top of the list. Good number of 500,000 people can benefit from our solution just within Pakistan.
How will the solution works
    Our solution is comprised on four levels. On level 1, we aim at acquiring a 2D single image using our smartphone camera. On level 2, we apply computer vision techniques to extract the skeletal information. On Level 3, we comprehend the locations of our previously detected joints. And then on Level 4, once we have the locations of joints under study, we can now introduce and calibrate the parameters on the basis of which we will deliver our final conclusion of normality of the posture.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Companies working with in-lab setups using multiple cameras. Some who are working with single cameras, use depth-sensing cameras. Our solution is different and definitely an improvements as we are working with normal smartphone cameras without depth sensors.
