Video Analytics applications like security and surveillance face a critical problem of person re-identification abbreviated as re-ID. The last decade witnessed the emergence of large-scale datasets and deep learning methods to use these huge data volumes. Most current re-ID methods are classified into either image-based or video-based re-ID. Matching persons across multiple camera views have attracted lots of recent research attention. Feature representation and metric learning are major issues for person re-identification. The focus of re-ID work is now shifting towards developing end-to-end re-Id and tracking systems for practical use with dynamic datasets. Most previous works contributed to the significant progress of person re-identification on still images using image retrieval models. This survey considers the more informative and challenging video-based person re-ID problem, pedestrian re-ID in particular. Publicly available datasets and codes are listed as a part of this work. Current trends which include open re-identification systems, use of discriminative features and deep learning is marching towards new applications in security and surveillance, typically for tracking.
