Title [en]
Bio-distance, Biometrics at a distance
Abstract [en]
Despite the importance and advantages of biometric solutions to the task of verifying personal identity, their adoption is slower than predicted. The market pull, driven by the introduction of governmental applications, is still in its early stage. Demands for more consumer convenience will drive innovation, with user-centered research focused on facilitating the ease of interaction with the system.Biometrics on the move is a novel research topic aimed to acquire biometric data at a distance as a person walks by detection equipment. This reduces the need of user?s cooperation, achieving low intrusiveness and thus, high acceptance. Its applications are very diverse, enhancing the customer experience where large number of people moves through a bottleneck (e.g. security checkpoints). It will also make a vast amount of surveillance cameras suitable for recognition purposes (e.g. placed in hallways).The objective of this proposal is to make biometric technologies applicable to data acquired at a distance and on the move, with face and iris as the reference modalities due to the possibility of their simultaneous acquisition. This is an important technological challenge, since the major limitation of current face/iris commercial systems is the degree of control and cooperation required during the acquisition. This project is an integrated approach, including basic research and algorithm development, and practical results through case studies implementation and evaluation.
