Abstract: In this paper, we present a comparative study on gait and activity analysis using LiDAR scanners with different resolution. Previous studies showed that gait recognition methods based on the point clouds of a Velodyne HDL-64E Rotating Multi-Beam LiDAR can be used for people re-identification in outdoor surveillance scenarios. However, the high cost and the weight of that sensor means a bottleneck for its wide application in surveillance systems. The contribution of this paper is to show that the proposed Lidar-based Gait Energy Image descriptor can be efficiently adopted to the measurements of the compact and significantly cheaper Velodyne VLP-16 LiDAR scanner, which produces point clouds with a nearly four times lower vertical resolution than HDL-64. On the other hand, due to the sparsity of the data, the VLP-16 sensor proves to be less efficient for the purpose of activity recognition, if the events are mainly characterized by fine hand movements. The evaluation is performed on five tests scenarios with multiple walking pedestrians, which have been recorded by both sensors in parallel. (More)
