Every individual has a unique walking pattern which may be used as a signature for identification. This paper describes the construction of a feasible human identification device using human gaits (Walking pattern). The authors have built a very low cost wearable suit mounted with eight rotation sensors, controller, software and power unit for measuring eight major joints of human body which are involved in locomotion. Different person's walking patterns can be captured with this suit which has been named IGOD (Intelligent Gait Oscillation Detector). IGOD meets an excellent standard of accuracy for capturing movements of major joint's oscillation during locomotion.
