This paper focuses on the classification of human gaits based on micro-Doppler signatures. The micro-Doppler signatures can represent detailed information about the human gaits, which helps in judging the threat of a personnel target. The proposed method consists of three major steps. Firstly, the micro-Doppler signatures are obtained by performing time-frequency analysis on the radar data. Then two micro-Doppler features are extracted from the time-frequency domain. Finally, the one-versus-one support vector machine (SVM) is used to realize multi-class classification. Experiments on real data show that, with the selected features, high classification accuracy of the human gaits of interest can be achieved.
