In an effort to find a biometric mode that is virtually foolproof, European researchers have been investigating the use of a person’s unique brain patterns scanned via headgear that uses electrocardiograms (ECGs) and electroencephalograms (EEGs), according to an ICT Results article.
The hardware associated with the project is still in a proof-of-concept stage, though the researchers are working to create headgear that is much less obtrusive for a user.
While the researchers on the project are elated with this creation of a new mode of biometrics, they have also been working on improving and creating many other modes. Among those are work on gait biometrics, which authenticates via the way one walks; seated posture biometrics and improving existing technology used for common single and multi-modal biometrics.
