We study the problem of analyzing and classifying frontal view gait video data. In this study, we suppose that frontal view gait data as a mixing of scale changing, human movements and speed changing parameters. We estimate these parameters using the statistical registration and modeling on a video data. Our gait model is based on human gait structure and temporal-spatial relations between camera and subject. To demonstrate the effectiveness of our method, we conducted two sets of experiments, assessing the proposed method in gait analysis for young/elderly person and abnormal gait detection. In abnormal gait detection experiment, we apply K-nearestneighbor classifier, using the estimated parameters, to perform normal/abnormal gait detect, and present results from an experiment involving 120 subjects (young person), and 60 subjects (elderly person). As a result, our method shows high detection rate.
