Abstract—Today’s commercially available biometric systems show good reliability. However, they generally lack user acceptance. In general, people favour systems with the least amount of interaction. Using gait as a biometric feature would lessen such problems since it requires no subject interaction other than walking by. Consequently, this would increase user acceptance. And since highly motivated users achieve higher recognition scores, it increases the overall recognition rate as well. The latest research on gait-based identification—identification by observation of a person’s walking style provides evidence that such a system is realistic and is likely to be developed and used in the years to come. This article outlines the application of gait technologies for security and other purposes. Gait analysis and recognition can form the basis of unobtrusive technologies for the detection of individuals who represent a security threat or behave suspiciously.
