I came across this article the other day titled: Chinese authorities use gait analysis to identify citizens on CCTV. The topic made me nostalgic, since I’d been part of some brainstorming on a very similar topic over a decade ago with some of the EDS (soon to be HP) Fellows.
We were imagining the possible uses of vibration analysis and signal processing. One of the areas discussed was gait recognition. Other ideas were monitoring patient health or even environment control, those turned into patent applications while I was at HP labs.
Seeing the article made me reflect on the great team I was part of at EDS and then HP, as well as the various truly innovative ideas we came up with and discussed with customers.
