Gait recognition is a biometric technology with unique advantages over other conventional ones, and its wide applications are yet to come. The proposed system applies gait recognition over existing video camera networks, converting them into powerful surveillance systems. It provides an efficient way of searching through the accumulated videos, saving human reviewers from tedious and inefficient work. The system also enables various scenarios from different cameras to be processed in parallel so different equipment at different locations can be coordinated to work together thus greatly improve the efficiency for searching and tracing subject persons. The system is adopted by policing department and has showed outstanding robustness and effectiveness.
