Abstract

This research proposes a model for representation and storage of motion data. Such representation will enable one to communicate, store, and analyze patterns of motion in a way similar to that with spoken and written languages. The basic problem is the lack of a machine readable motion alphabet. We thus set out to define the elemental components and building blocks of motion, coming up with a Motion Byte. Such building blocks are suggested as basis for a motion language that has words, phrases, and sentences. The binary-based model, significantly different from the common “key frames” approach, is also a method of storing motion data. Comparison of our method with a standard motion system, based on key frames, indicates a significant advantage for the binary model.
