European Union researchers have successfully tested a new biometric system that verifies a user’s identity via brain patterns using a series of tests called the Human Monitoring and Authentication. The system uses Biodynamic Indicators and Behavioral Analysis (Humabio), according to a Guardian article.
The tests were funded to look into new possibilities for authentication in ports of entry such as airports and border crossings. In addition to brain patterns, the researchers also looked at heart rhythms and biometric car seats that could determine if a truck had been hijacked by scanning for known posture.
In the UK, as well, there are plans for biometric expansion at UK Embassies and airports. The expansions that could total as much as $22 million for multi-modal systems at the embassies while the airports are set to get ten new facial recognition gates by August. The new gates will work with the newest passports that are already in use with facial recognition technology at Manchester and Stansted airports.
