Identigate - Biometric Surveillance Solution based on Gait Indentification

Friday, 01 August 2014

Biometric systems measure and analyse human physical and/or behavioural characteristics for authentication, identification or screening purposes.

Physical characteristics that can be measured include fingerprints, iris, DNA and facial patterns.

The two most common behavioural characteristics are voice and human gait (which refers to the manner of walking).

Academics at Ulster University have developed an innovative feature extraction technique to capture a persons gait. An intelligent camera solution then allows realtime screening of individuals (in high-security civilian or military facilities e.g. airport securit) and comparison with an existing database of the gait of known or suspected terroists or criminals.
