Abstract

Gender classification play a significant role in recognition performance. For the purpose of visual surveillance, gender is considered as an important factor. In this paper a hybrid approach is proposed by fusing Gait Energy Image (GEI) with spatio temporal parameters for the gender classification. The dataset used is CASIA B which comprises of 118 subjects (89 males and 29 females). The proposed method consists of four steps. Gait Energy Image (GEI) is obtained by normalizing and averaging all the silhouette images in one gait cycle for all the subjects. The dimensions of GEI image is reduced by using principal component analysis. 5 spatio temporal parameters namely cadence, speed, height, stride length, stance period are calculated and concatenated with the reduced GEI Image. The reduced feature vector set is trained and tested using support vector machine and artificial neural network. Maximum accuracy achieved is 98.16% which shows the highly competitive results compared to previous methods.
