Eye-Movements as a Biometric
We propose the use of eye-movements as a biometric. A case study investigating potentials of eye-movement data for biometric purposes was conducted. Twelve participants’ eye-movements were measured during still and moving objects viewing. The measured data includes pupil sizes and their dynamics, gaze velocities and distances of infrared reflections of the eyes. For still object viewing of 1 second duration, identification rate of 60 % can be obtained by using dynamics of pupil diameters. We suggest an integration of the eye-movement-based identification into general video-based biometric systems.
