Enabling artificial systems to recognize human actions is a requisite to develop intelligent assistance systems that are able to instruct and supervise users in accomplishing tasks. In order to enable an assistance system to be wearable, head-mounted cameras allow to perceive a scene visually from a user's perspective. But realizing action recognition without any static sensors causes special challenges. The movement of the camera is directly related to the user's head motion and not controlled

In this paper we present how a trajectory-based action recognition can be combined with object recognition, visual tracking, and a background motion compensation to be applicable in such a wearable assistance system. The suitability of our approach is proved by user studies in an object manipulation scenario.
