Gait based gender classification is an emerging area in the field of biometrics that has received a lot of interest from researchers mainly due to its advantages over the other methods and its potential application. Gait based gender classification helps a vision based biometric analysis system by focusing the gender-unique features. This helps to improves the performance of the model by limiting the authentication database searching to only one gender. Through the years, researchers have tried a wide variety of techniques and their combinations to improve the accuracy of gait based biometric systems in varying use-cases. In this study, we have given a brief overview of some of the recent and pioneering works done in the field of gait-based gender classification.
