In this paper, we propose a new probabilistic gait representation to characterize human walking for recognition by gait. The approach obtains the binomial distribution of every pixel in a gait cycle. Organizing the binomial distribution of all pixels in the gait image, we obtain the gait signature, which we denote as the Gait Probability Image (GPI). In the recognition stage, symmetric Kullback-Leibler divergence is used to measure the information theoretical distance between gait signatures. The experimental results reveal that GPI achieves promising recognition rates. Besides that, experiments on different walking speeds demonstrate that GPI is robust to slight variation in walking speed.
