Gait recognition is to identify individuals by analysis of gait pattern. Here a simple and efficient gait recognition method based on positioning body joints is presented. At first key frame is extracted based on cyclic gait analysis. For each key frame image, background subtraction is performed to extract moving body silhouettes from the background. Then the coordinates of joints are computed according to the geometrical characteristics shown while walking. The limbs angles are computed based… CONTINUE READING
