Abstract

In this paper, a new approach is proposed for extracting human gait features from a walking human based on the silhouette image. The approach consists of five stages: clearing the background noise of image by morphological opening; measuring the width and height of the human silhouette; dividing the enhanced human silhouette into six body segments based on anatomical knowledge; applying morphological skeleton to obtain the body skeleton; and applying Hough transform to obtain the joint angles from the body segment skeletons. The joint angles together with the height and width of the human silhouette are collected and used for gait analysis. From the experiment conducted, it can be observed that the proposed system is feasible as satisfactory results have been achieved.
