Gait and Anthropometric Profile Biometrics: A Step Forward
- 1.1k Downloads
Emerging biometrics based on the measurements of body dynamic and static characteristics have gained increased importance in all the surveillance environments where the security is a mandatory priority. Some technology branches are involved to find unobtrusive solutions for authentication systems, where the human subject should not take care of the system itself so that he/she is free to perform his/her normal actions. In the first part of the chapter a novel gait recognition system is presented that introduces the use of range data for gait signal analysis. In the second part of the chapter, a description of system based on a sensing seat for event-related continuous authentication purpose in office and car scenarios is presented. Both biometric technologies introduce new means of verifying the user identity, by exploiting the analysis of common and every-day activities recorded in an unobtrusive manner and their recognition accuracy has been seen to be very high in the performed experiments.
