Human activity recognition is one of the most challenging and active areas of research in the computer vision domain. However, designing automatic systems that are robust to significant variability due to object combinations and the high complexity of human motions are more challenging. In this paper, we propose to model the inter-frame rigid evolution of skeleton parts as the trajectory in the Lie group SE(3)×...×SE(3). The motion of the object is similarly modeled as an additional trajectory

Experimental results on three action and activity datasets show that the proposed method outperforms various state-of-the-art human activity recognition approaches.
