Walking is one of the major human activities, and walking pattern is unique for each individual. Thus, human gait can be applied in biometric personal authentication. The traditional method for gait recognition is based on one or multiple cameras. With the rapid development of Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS), small light inertial sensors have been used for human identification so far. In this study, a gait based personal authentication method is proposed using MEMS inertial sensors. They…
