This chapter presents a way to classify interactions between people. Examples of the interactions we investigate are: people meeting one another, walking together, and fighting. A new feature set is proposed along with a corresponding classification method. Results are presented which show the new method performing significantly better than the previous state of the art method as proposed by Oliver et al. (2000).
