China is developing a system that recognizes individuals by their body shape and walking movements. The new system, known as "gait recognition", is already being used by police on the streets of Beijing and Shanghai. The Chinese technology company Watrix developed the system. The company announced that it had raised $14.5 million to speed up the development and sale of the technology. The system works in a similar way to face recognition. Facial recognition systems identify the shapes and expressions on a person's face to identify them. Gait recognition uses a person's body shape and their way of walking to identify them.
