OpenPose would not be possible without the CMU Panoptic Studio dataset. The body pose estimation work is based on the following and original 2 repositories: CVPR 2017 repository and ECCV 2016 repository.

  2. Donglai Xiang: Camera calibration toolbox improvement, including the implementation of its bundle adjustment algorithm.
  3. Luis Fernando Fraga: Implementation of Lukas-Kanade algorith and person ID extractor.
