Introduction Recognition of any individual is a task to identify people. Human recognition methods such as face, fingerprints, and iris generally require a cooperative subject, physical contact or close proximity. These methods are not able to recognize an individual at a distance therefore recognition using gait is relatively new biometric technique without these disadvantages. Human identification using Gait is method to identify an individual by the way he walk or manner of moving on foot. Gait recognition is a type of biometric recognition and related to the behavioural characteristics of biometric recognition. Gait offers ability of distance recognition or at low resolution. Gait recognition is one kind of biometric technology that can be used to monitor people without their cooperation. Controlled environments such as banks, military installations and even airports need to be able to quickly detect threats and provide differing levels of access to different user groups. Gait shows a particular way or manner of moving on foot and gait recognition is the process of identifying an individual by the manner in which they walk. Gait is less unobtrusive biometric, which offers the possibility to identify people at a distance, without any interaction or co-operation from the subject; this is the property which makes it so attractive. This paper proposed new method for gait recognition. In this method, firstly binary silhouette of a walking person is detected from each
