In order to reduce the searching space of shape context matching method and improve the speed of silhouette matching, a matching method based on partial body silhouette is proposed. In this method body silhouette is divided into segmentations according to the principle of human body composition, and then match the representative silhouettes under the restrictions of limbs silhouette characteristic. The similarity of the whole silhouette is evaluated by means of the statistical analysis of the similarity of every part. Experimental results show that the method can effectively improve the speed of the body silhouette matching.
