Abstract:  Given the continuing advances in gait biometrics, it appears prudent to investigate the translation of these techniques for forensic use. We address the question as to the confidence that might be given between any two such measurements. We use the locations of ankle, knee, and hip to derive a measure of the match between walking subjects in image sequences. The Instantaneous Posture Match algorithm, using Harr templates, kinematics, and anthropomorphic knowledge is used to determine…

The use of biometric technologies becomes ubiquitous in modern society due to the proliferating number of crimes and terror attacks as well as the vital need to provide safer environment. Gait
Evidence Evaluation of Gait Biometrics for Forensic Investigation
TLDR
The suitability of gait recognition for forensic analysis emerges from the fact that gait can be perceived at distance from the camera even with poor resolution, which makes gait identification ideal for situations where direct contact with the perpetrator is not possible.
Identification by a hybrid 3D/2D gait recognition algorithm
TLDR
A set of experiments was conducted to illustrate the potential of matching 3D volumetric data against gait images from single cameras inside the Biometric Tunnel at Southampton University using the Gait Energy Image as gait features and found the assumption made previously that straight ahead walking and curved walking are similar, is invalid.
On use of biometrics in forensics: Gait and ear
TLDR
This work describes how gait and ear biometrics could be deployed for use in forensic identification, and finds that ears and gait offer distinct advantages over other biometric modalities.
Forensic Gait Analysis and Recognition: Standards of Evidence Admissibility
TLDR
Courts should treat gait evidence with caution, as they should any other form of evidence originating from disciplines without fully established codes of practice, error rates, and demonstrable applications in forensic scenarios.
Kinect-Based Gait Analysis for People Recognition Over Time
TLDR
This paper investigates if gait can be considered invariant over time for an individual, at least in a time interval of few years, by comparing gait samples of several subjects three years apart.
On Using Soft Biometrics in Forensic Investigation
TLDR
A software platform is proposed to automate many of the required procedures and including some initial implementation of soft biometric extraction tools, and novel biometric methods to analyze human gait and facial traits are described and experimentally validated as a demonstration of future perspectives in soft biometrics.
Reliable Gait Recognition Using 3D Reconstructions and Random Forests – An Anthropometric Approach
TLDR
3D reconstructions are feasible for forensic gait analysis as an improved alternative to conventional CCTV, however, further studies are needed to account for the use of different clothing, field conditions, etc.

TLDR
This thesis is concerned with Gait Recognition in unconstrained scenarios and aims to address research questions covering investigating, developing and testing the performance of using a variety of gait sequence features for the various components/tasks and their integration.
Gait Recognition from Markerless 3D Motion Capture
TLDR
The markerless motion capture algorithm fits the 3D SMPL body model to a 2D image and is matched using a verification system trained using an automated machine learning system, auto-sklearn.

Performance analysis for automated gait extraction and recognition in multi-camera surveillance
TLDR
A new method for viewpoint independent markerless gait analysis that does not require camera calibration and works with a wide range of walking directions, which makes the proposed method particularly suitable for gait identification in real surveillance scenarios where people and their behaviour need to be tracked across a set of cameras.
Person identification by gait analysis and photogrammetry.
TLDR
It was concluded that one of the perpetrators showed strong resemblance to the suspect, and both exhibited a gait characterized by hyperextension of the leg joints, and bodily measurements did not differ by more than 6 mm on average.
Automatic extraction and description of human gait models for recognition purposes
TLDR
A new model-based moving feature extraction analysis is presented that automatically extracts and describes human gait for recognition and is shown to be able to handle high levels of occlusion, which is of especial importance in gait as the human body is self-occluding.
Recognizing people in non-intersecting camera views
TLDR
Experimental results revealed the potential of the new approach for people tracking and identification between different non-intersecting uncalibrated cameras based on gait analysis to work in real surveillance systems to recognize walking people over different views.
Gait-based recognition of humans using continuous HMMs
TLDR
This paper proposes a view-based approach to recognize humans through gait using a continuous hidden Markov model that serves to compactly capture structural and transitional features that are unique to an individual.

TLDR
A new model-based extraction process guided by biomechanical analysis for walking people, and analysis of the extracted gait parameters suggest that recognition capability is primarily gained from cadence and from static shape parameters, although gait is the cue by which these are derived.
A Framework for Evaluating the Effect of View Angle, Clothing and Carrying Condition on Gait Recognition
TLDR
A framework consisting of a large gait database, a large set of well designed experiments and some evaluation metrics to evaluate gait recognition algorithms is proposed.

Pedestrian detection using wavelet templates
TLDR
This paper presents a trainable object detection architecture that is applied to detecting people in static images of cluttered scenes and shows how the invariant properties and computational efficiency of the wavelet template make it an effective tool for object detection.
Human identification based on gait
TLDR
This research presents a meta-modelling architecture suitable for model-based approaches to recognize human gait and presents a novel approach called a “model-based approach”.
