This paper presents a new model of scale, rotation, and translations invariant interest point descriptor for human actions recognition. The descriptor, HMIV (Hu Moment Invariants on Videos) is used for solving surveillance camera recording problems under different conditions of side, position, direction and illumination. The proposed approach deals with raw input human action video sequences. Seven Hu moments are computed for extracting human action features and for storing them in a 1D vector

The experiments are evaluated using two different datasets; KTH and UCF101. The classification process is executed by calculating the Euclidean distance between the training and testing datasets. Human action with minimum distance will be selected as the winner matching action. The maximum classification accuracy in this work is 93.4% for KTH dataset and 92.11% for UCF101.
