We consider the problem of detecting Egocentric Human-Object Interactions (EHOIs) in industrial contexts. Since collecting and labeling large amounts of real images is challenging, we propose a pipeline and a tool to generate photo-realistic synthetic First Person Vision (FPV) images automatically labeled for EHOI detection in a specific industrial scenario. To tackle the problem of EHOI detection, we propose a method that detects the hands, the objects in the scene, and determines which objects are currently involved in an interaction. We compare the performance of our method with a set of state-of-the-art baselines. Results show that using a synthetic dataset improves the performance of an EHOI detection system, especially when few real data are available.

Abstract

We consider the problem of detecting Egocentric Human-Object Interactions (EHOIs) in industrial contexts. Since collecting and labeling large amounts of real images is challenging, we propose a pipeline and a tool to generate photo-realistic synthetic First Person Vision (FPV) images automatically labeled for EHOI detection in a specific industrial scenario. To tackle the problem of EHOI detection, we propose a method that detects the hands, the objects in the scene, and determines which objects are currently involved in an interaction. We compare the performance of our method with a set of state-of-the-art baselines. Results show that using a synthetic dataset improves the performance of an EHOI detection system, especially when few real data are available. To encourage research on this topic, we publicly release the proposed dataset at the following url: https://iplab.dmi.unict.it/EHOI_SYNTH/.
