### Installation and Requirements###

You should be able to run the code with MATLAB R2010b or later. 
The package includes one section of my own toolbox, if you want you
could download the full version from the following github website:

The code uses tracklets obtained using code provided by [2]. You can obtain
the code at

Our package contains two versions of binary files compiled from
their source code (one with velocities and the other with absolute coordinates).

We are working on a CUDA implementation that will be uploaded soon. Please 
check again in a few weeks at the repo:

### Tests ###

The testing script mainProcedure.m has two sections. One is for
massive processing and the other is for labeling visualization.

Run the following code in MATLAB terminal: 

>> mainProcedure

---- Test  Section 1 ---- 
This section loads the testData.mat, which is velocity information
extracted from tracklets from a set of videos depicting activities. 

This section includes Kmeans Clustering and Labeling
subsections. These two steps are the basis for Bags of Hankelets as 
described in [1].

Based on these procedures, other researchers can easily modify the code to use
their own experiment settings for other datasets. 

---- Test  Section 2 ---- 
This section loads person_trial.mat, which is extracted from
person01_boxing_d1_uncomp video in KTH dataset [3] by using the two binary
files located in 90support/dense_binary.  Again, one is for velocities and 
the other one is for absolute coordinates.

The variable X_train is extracted from "corresponding velocity" (:, 8:37)';
and varialbe trajectory is extracted from "absolute" (:, 8:37);

The "corresponding velocity" is the information we processed in
our algorithm for clustering and labeling. The absolute coordinates portion
 is only for visulaization purposes.

### Bugs and extensions ###

If you find bugs, etc., feel free to drop me a line. Also if you
developed some extension to the program, let me know and I can include
it in the code. You could contact me through email: at
