    ABSTRACT: We propose a new method for background modeling. Our method is based on the two complementary approaches. One uses the probability density function(PDF) to approximate background model. The PDF is estimated non-parametrically by using Parzen density estimation. And foreground object is detected based on the estimated PDF. The other method is based on the evaluation of the local texture at pixel-level resolution while reducing the effects of variations in lighting. Fusing their approach realize robust object detection under varying illumination. Several experiments show the effectiveness of our approach.

    ABSTRACT: We propose a method of gait identification based on multi-view gait images using an omnidirectional camera. We first transform omnidirectional silhouette images into panoramic ones and obtain a spatio-temporal Gait Silhouette Volume (GSV). Next, we extract frequency- domain features by Fourier analysis based on gait periods estimated by autocorrelation of the GSVs. Because the omnidirectional camera makes it possible to observe a straight-walking person from various views, multi-view features can be extracted from the GSVs composed of multi-view images. In an identification phase, distance between a probe and a gallery feature of the same view is calculated, and then these for all views are integrated for matching. Experiments of gait identification including 15 subjects from 5 views demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: Using gait as a biometric is of emerging interest. We describe a new model-based moving feature extraction analysis is presented that automatically extracts and describes human gait for recognition. The gait signature is extracted directly from the evidence gathering process. This is possible by using a Fourier series to describe the motion of the upper leg and apply temporal evidence gathering techniques to extract the moving model from a sequence of images. Simulation results highlight potential performance benefits in the presence of noise. Classification uses the k-nearest neighbour rule applied to the Fourier components of the motion of the upper leg. Experimental analysis demonstrates that an improved classification rate is given by the phase-weighted Fourier magnitude information over the use of the magnitude information alone. The improved classification capability of the phase-weighted magnitude information is verified using statistical analysis of the separation of clusters in the feature space. Furthermore, the technique is shown to be able to handle high levels of occlusion, which is of especial importance in gait as the human body is self-occluding. As such, a new technique has been developed to automatically extract and describe a moving articulated shape, the human leg, and shown its potential in gait as a biometric.
