Gait identification using fractal analysis and support vector machine

This paper presents the development of wearable sensing system that can be used to study the gait dynamics of human. A tester wearing sensing shoes participates in this study. Human gait information about standing, jumping and walking is obtained as prior probability based on the train movement model setup theory. For feature extraction of gait, five kinds of features are extracted from foot pressure signals, which are subsequently used for motion analysis. We employ support vector machine and fractal analysis for gait recognition and test the identification performance. Testing outcomes indicate an overall accuracy of 93.57% via radial basis function kernel function. These results demonstrate considerable potential in gait identification.
