Gait for Visual surveillance

Surveillance technology is now ubiquitous in modern society.  This is due to  the increasing number of crimes as well as the vital need to provide a safer environment. Because of the rapid growth  of security cameras and incapability of manpower to supervise them, the deployment of biometric technologies becomes important for the development of automated visual surveillance systems. Recently, the use of gait for people identification in surveillance applications has attracted researchers from  computer vision.  The suitability of gait recognition for surveillance systems emerges from the fact that gait can be perceived from a distance as well as its non-invasive nature. Although gait recognition is still a new biometric and is not sufficiently mature to be deployed in real world applications such as visual surveillance, it overcomes most of the limitations that other biometrics suffer from such as face, fingerprints and iris recognition which can be obscured in most situations where serious crimes are involved.
