In recent years, many gait recognition algorithms have been developed, but most of them depend on a specific view angle. In this paper,we present a new gait recognition scheme based on multi-view gait sequence fusion. An experimental comparison of the fusion of gait sequences at different views is reported. Our experiments show the fusion of gait sequences at different views can consistently achieve better results. The Dempster-Shafer fusion method is found to give a great improvement. On the other hand, we also find that fusion of gait sequences with an angle difference greater than or equal to 90° can achieve better improvement than fusion of those with an acute angle difference.
