EigenGait: Motion-Based Recognition of People Using Image Self-Similarity

  title={EigenGait: Motion-Based Recognition of People Using Image Self-Similarity},
  author={Chiraz BenAbdelkader and Ross Cutler and Harsh Nanda and Larry S. Davis},
We present a novel technique for motion-based recognition of individual gaits in monocular sequences. Recent work has suggested that the image self-similarity plot of a moving person/object is a projection of its planar dynamics. Hence we expect that these plots encode much information about gait motion patterns, and that they can serve as good discriminants between different types of gait. We propose a method for gait recognition that uses similarity plots the same way that face images are… CONTINUE READING
