Using Gait as a Biometric, via Phase-weighted Magnitude Spectra

  title={Using Gait as a Biometric, via Phase-weighted Magnitude Spectra},
  author={David Cunado and Mark S. Nixon and John N. Carter},
Gait is a biometric which is subject to increasing interest. Current approaches include modelling gait as a spatio-temporal sequence and as an articulated model. By considering legs only, gait can be considered to be the motion of interlinked pendula. We describe how the Hough transform is used to extract the lines which represent legs in sequences of video images. The change in inclination of these lines follows simple harmonic motion; this motion is used as the gait biometric. The method of… CONTINUE READING
