Researchers from the Automation Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have detailed their advances in gait recognition in a report in The International News.
Huang Yongzhen, an associate researcher from CAS, said its gait recognition solution is functional within a distance of 50 meters from its target and capable of identifying a specific person just by analyzing how they carry themselves. Detection time is reduced to less than 200 milliseconds.
The technology can also identify a person without their active cooperation. Even if they walk past the surveillance camera hiding their face, the gait recognition algorithm can still unveil their identity.
The CAS-developed system also incorporates real-time people counting technology and is able to detect up to 1,000 people within an area of 1,000 square meters making the technology suitable for the fields of security and public transport, among others.
