Gait Biometrics Tunnel

The Gait Tunnel is the only facility in the UK specifically arranged to produce state-of-the-art multiview image sequences of walking people to construct a real-time 3D computer vision silhouette, taking measurements that recognise the totally unique gait patterns that give us all our own walking fingerprint.

Teaching

Teaching in this lab is based in project work. It is used as exemplar material in modules COMP3204 Computer vision and COMP 6211 Biometrics.

Research

The Gait Tunnel serves as a research tool to investigate new ideas: for example work is currently being undertaken to develop a way to reconstruct the footage seen in a surveillance camera so that it appears from a different viewpoint.

Business and Enterprise

Business could use the tunnel as a basis of a system to recognise people as they walk through, or to analyse them for gait abnormalities.

This is real-time 3D computer vision. We do not use a Kinect or a structured light system. It’s like a 3D video recorder.

The gait laboratory has seen extensive media coverage. Last year on BBC News, Newsnight and on ABC Australia.
