Paper Abstract

Good pedestrian classifiers that analyze static images for presence of pedestrians are in existence. However, even a low false positive error rating is sufficient to flood a real system with false warnings. We address the problem of pedestrian motion (gait) modeling and recognition using sequences of images rather than static individual frames, thereby exploiting information in the dynamics. We use two different representations and corresponding distances for gait sequences. In the first a gait is represented as a manifold in a lower dimensional space corresponding to gait images. In the second a gait image sequence is represented as the output of a dynamical system whose underlying driving process is an action like walking or running. We examine distance functions corresponding to these representations. For dynamical systems we formulate distances derived based on parameters of the system taking into account both the structure of the output space and the dynamics within it. Given appearance based models we present results demonstrating the discriminative power of the proposed distances
