Abstract

In recent years, many gait recognition algorithms have been developed, but most of them depend on a specific view angle. However, view angle variation is a significant factor among those that affect gait recognition performance. It is important to find the relationship between the performance and the view angle. In this paper, we discuss the effect of view angle variation on appearance-based gait recognition performance. A multi-view gait database (124 subjects and 11 view directions) is created for our research. We propose two models, a geometrical one and a mathematical one, to model the effect of view angle variation on appearance-based gait recognition. These models will be valuable for designing robust gait recognition systems.
