The visual recognition and understanding of human actions remain an active research domain of computer vision, being the scope of various research works over the last two decades. The problem is challenging due to its many interpersonal variations in appearance and motion dynamics between humans, without forgetting the environmental heterogeneity between different video images. This complexity splits the problem into two major categories: action classification, recognising the action being

Previous surveys mainly focus on the evolution of this field, from handcrafted features to deep learning architectures. However, this survey presents an overview of both categories and respective evolution within each one, the guidelines that should be followed and the current benchmarks employed for performance comparison between the state-of-the-art methods.
