It is crucial to find methods that analyze large amount of data captured by cameras and/or various sensors installed all around us. Machine learning becomes a prevailing tool in analyzing such data that signifies behavioral characteristics of human beings. Gait as an identifier for use in individual recognition systems has respective and almost certainly unique key features for each person including centroid, cycle length and step size. Gait is sometimes preeminent suited to recognition or surveillance scenarios. It might be used in the identification of females who are wearing veils in some countries without critical social issues. The objective of this project is to predict accurately one-dimensional coordinates of normalized n-component vectors representing two-dimensional silhouettes in order to identify individuals at a distance without any interaction and obtrusion. Varied algorithms are further incorporated into walk pattern analysis to adoptively improve gait recognitions and classification. The results are reported reasonable identification performance as compared to several machine learning methods.
