Markerless View Independent Gait Analysis with Self-camera Calibration

Goffredo, Michela, Seely, Richard D., Carter, John N. and Nixon, Mark S. (2008) Markerless View Independent Gait Analysis with Self-camera Calibration At IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition 2008, Netherlands. 17 - 19 Sep 2008.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


We present a new method for viewpoint independent markerless gait analysis. The system uses a single camera, does not require camera calibration and works with a wide range of directions of walking. These properties make the proposed method particularly suitable for identification by gait, where the advantages of completely unobtrusiveness, remoteness and covertness of the biometric system preclude the availability of camera information and use of marker based technology. Tests on more than 200 video sequences with subjects walking freely along different walking directions have been performed. The obtained results show that markerless gait analysis can be achieved without any knowledge of internal or external camera parameters and that the obtained data that can be used for gait biometrics purposes. The performance of the proposed method is particularly encouraging for its appliance in surveillance scenarios.
