In this chapter, we propose a comparison between two techniques for one-shot person re-identification from soft biometric cues. One is based upon a descriptor composed of features provided by a skeleton estimation algorithm; the other compares body shapes in terms of whole point clouds. This second approach relies on a novel technique we propose to warp the subject’s point cloud to a standard pose, which allows to disregard the problem of the different poses a person can assume. This technique is also used for composing 3D models which are then used at testing time for matching unseen point clouds. We test the proposed approaches on an existing RGB-D re-identification dataset and on the newly built BIWI RGBD-ID dataset. This dataset provides sequences of RGB, depth, and skeleton data for 50 people in two different scenarios and it has been made publicly available to foster advancement in this new research branch.
