Biometric scan can identify footsteps
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
There are a wide variety of biometric tools available, including fingerprint scans, iris scans and facial recognition. At Springwise, we have seen innovations in biometric scanning that include using biometric data to reveal customers’ ideal holiday destinations and facial recognition used to identify endangered primates. Now, footstep-based biometrics can be added to the list. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi have developed a biometric system based on footsteps. The new system uses a geophone. This is a transducer that converts ground movement into electrical signals then analysed by machine learning algorithms. The researchers first had volunteers walk…
