Covariate factors, such as persons carrying a bag and wearing a jacket, continue to cause significant misclassification in gait recognition. A novel and efficient approach learns a “typical” Gait Energy Image representation free from covariate factors which aids their mitigation in test and training data. Combating the influence of covariate factors yields a significant improvement of 11% over existing state of the art performance for sequences capturing persons wearing a jacket.
