Human Identification Based on Gait is the first book to address gait as a biometric. Biometrics is now in a unique position where it affects most people''s lives. This is especially true of "gait," which is one of the most recent biometrics. Recognizing people by the way they walk and run implies analyzing movement which, in turn, implies analyzing sequences of images, thus requiring memory and computational performance that became available only recently. Human Identification Based on Gait introduces developments from distinguished researchers within this relatively new area of biometrics. This book clearly establishes how human gait is biometric.
Human Identification Based on Gait is structured to meet the needs of professionals in industry, as well as advanced-level students in computer science.
