Abstract

There is increasing interest in automatic recognition by gait given its unique capability to recognize people at a distance when other biometrics are obscured. Application domains are those of any noninvasive biometric, but with particular advantage in surveillance scenarios. Its recognition capability is supported by studies in other domains such as medicine (biomechanics), mathematics and psychology which also suggest that gait is unique. Further, examples of recognition by gait can be found in literature, with early reference by Shakespeare concerning recognition by the way people walk. Many of the current approaches confirm the early results that suggested gait could be used for identification, and now on much larger databases. This has been especially influenced by DARPA’s Human ID at a Distance research program with its wide scenario of data and approaches. Gait has benefited from the developments in other biometrics and has led to new insight particularly in view of covariates. Equally, gait-recognition approaches concern extraction and description of moving articulated shapes and this has wider implications than just in biometrics.
