Gonzalo Bailador, post-doctoral researcher at the University of Madrid (Spain), developed two new identification systems for mobile users based on the users’ biometric features.
The first one is the signature in the air, the device can detect the user with it. This method is based on the extraction of the hand acceleration when signing in the air. This data is then compared to a pattern that was created the first time the software was initiated.
The second one is based on the hand geometry. It is based on the fact each human being owns different hand geometry characteristics such as the finger width, the length of the palm etc…
First some pictures of the user’s hand are taken, and with the use of some algorithms developed by Gonzalo Bailador, the software is then capable of extracting these unique characteristics from each person, which allows for secure and non-transferable identification.
