Human posture identification for motion controlling applications is becoming more of a challenge. We present a posture classification system using skeletal-tracking feature of Microsoft Kinect sensor. Posture recovery is carried out by detecting the human body joints, its position, and orientation at the same time. Angular representation of the skeleton data makes the system very robust and avoids problems related to human body occlusions and motion ambiguities. The implemented system is tested on a class of relatively common postures comprising hundreds of human pose instances by different people, where our classifier shows an average accuracy of 94.9%, 96.7% and 96.9% for linear, exponential and priority based matching systems respectively.
