The need for non-interactive human recognition systems to ensure safe isolation between users and biometric equipment has been exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. This study introduces a novel Multi-Scaled Deep Convolutional Structure for Punctilious Human Gait Authentication (MSDCS-PHGA). The proposed MSDCS-PHGA involves segmenting, preprocessing, and resizing silhouette images into three scales. Gait features are extracted from these multi-scale images using custom convolutional layers and fused to form an integrated feature set. This multi-scaled deep convolutional approach demonstrates its efficacy in gait recognition by significantly enhancing accuracy. The proposed convolutional neural network (CNN) architecture is assessed using three benchmark datasets: CASIA, OU-ISIR, and OU-MVLP. Moreover, the proposed model is evaluated against other pre-trained models using key performance metrics such as precision, accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, and training time. The results indicate that the proposed deep CNN model outperforms existing models focused on human gait. Notably, it achieves an accuracy of approximately 99.9% for both the CASIA and OU-ISIR datasets and 99.8% for the OU-MVLP dataset while maintaining a minimal training time of around 3 min.
