Abstract

Person identification is needed to provide various personalized services at home or at the office. We propose a system for tracking persons identified at the entrance to a room in order to realize “soft authentication.” Our system can be constructed at low cost and works anytime and anywhere in a room. Through experiments, we confirmed that the system could track up to 5 persons with a high probability of correct identification, though precise identification is difficult.
