The field of human activity recognition (HAR) seeks to identify and classify an individual's unique movements or activities. However, recognizing human activity from video is a challenging task that requires careful attention to individuals, their behaviors, and relevant body parts. Multimodal activity recognition systems are necessary for many applications, including video surveillance systems, human-computer interfaces, and robots that analyze human behavior. This study provides a comprehensive analysis of recent breakthroughs in human activity classification, including different approaches, methodologies, applications, and limitations. Additionally, the study identifies several challenges that require further investigation and improvements. The specifications for an ideal human activity recognition dataset are also discussed, along with a thorough examination of the publicly available human activity classification datasets.
