Research project: Gait biometrics

Currently Active: 

Gait has advantages as a biometric in that the gait can be perceived at low resolution of when other biometrics are concealed or are not available. As such it is highly suited to surveillance analysis. We are pioneers of gait as a biometric, authoring the first paper to demonstrate gait as a biometric, and our textbook (Nixon, Tan and Chellappa) which is the first in the field. Our research has appeared on many TV programmes internationally, and in much international press and radio.
