Footstep recognition was first suggested as a biometric in 1977 by Pedotti , but it was not until 1997 when Addlesee et al.  reported the first experiments. Since then the subject has received relatively little attention in the literature, and so it is perhaps of little surprise that reported performances fall short of those achievable with other, more popular, and researched biometrics. However, recent work has demonstrated the real potential of the footstep biometric which is certainly not without its appeal.
