The objective of ActIPret is to develope a cognitive vision methodology that interprets and records the activities of people handling tools. Focus is on active observation and interpretation of activities, on parsing the sequences into constituent behaviour elements, and on extracting the essential activities and their functional dependence. By providing this functionality ActIPret will enable observation of experts executing intricate tasks such as repairing machines and maintaining plants. The expert activities are interpreted and stored using natural language expressions in an activity plan. The activity plan is an indexed manual in the form of 3D reconstructed scenes, which can be replayed at any time and location to many users using Augmented Reality equipment.
