Beijing-based company Watrix AI has developed a technology to identify people by their gait, using a laser-based system.
Watrix is a company known for creating the first commercialized gait recognition technology. Using a laser-based system it can identify individuals based on their gait features.
Compared with other biometrics such as the face, gait features are obtainable and recognizable at a distance. With Watrix technology Identification of an individual is possible even with a low-resolution video shot with an ordinary 2K camera. Other special characteristics of this technology are non-contact, long-distance (50 meters), cross-view (360°) recognition range with no need to involve face information, and non-dependency on lighting conditions. Gait recognition technology is capable of identifying people from any angle without them even being aware.Identification
The average recognition rate of Watrix technology can reach 94.1% Watrix has also created the largest gait database.
Some Chinese cities are already piloting this tracking system.
