Human activity prediction is a challenging task. The aim of this paper is to track the human motion and probabilistically predict the future action of the target. This is done in three ways detect the target, estimate the direction and then predict the future action. We employ K-means algorithm which results were not very encouraged hence we shifted to level sets for better target localization. A probabilistic approach is used to estimate the direction of motion. MAP estimator is implemented to estimate the direction of the object motion. The results of estimated directions are used to predict the position of the object in future frames.
