In its early years, the field of computer vision was largely motivated by researchers seeking computational models of biological vision and solutions to practical problems in industry, defense, and medicine. For the last two decades, there has been an increasing interest in computer vision as an input modality in multimodal human-computer interaction. Such vision-based perceptual interaction can endow interactive systems with visual capabilities similar to those important to human-human interaction, that can perceive non-verbal cues and incorporate such information in applications such as interactive gaming, visualization, art installations, intelligent agent interaction, and various kinds of command and control tasks. To enable this kind of rich, visual interaction requires interactive-time solutions to problems such as detecting and recognizing faces and facial expressions, determining a person's direction of gaze and focus of attention, tracking movement of the body, and recognizing various kinds of gestures. In building technologies for perceptual interaction, there are choices as to the range of possible sensors employed (e.g., single camera, stereo rig, depth camera), the precision and granularity of the desired outputs, the mobility of the solution, etc. Practical considerations indicate that there is not a one-size-fits-all solution to this wide range of perceptual interaction scenarios; however, there are principles and methodological approaches common to a wide range of problems in the domain. While the Microsoft Kinect has had a major influence on the research and practice of vision-based interaction in various settings, it is just a starting point for continued progress in the area. In this book, we discuss the landscape of history, opportunities, and challenges in this area of vision-based perceptual interaction; we review the state-of-the-art and seminal works in detecting and recognizing the human body and its components;
