Biometrie for home environment challenges, modalities and applications

  • Utilizing biometrie traits for privacy- and security-applications is receiving an increasing attention. Applications such as personal identification, access control, forensics appli-cations, e-banking, e-government, e-health and recently person-alized human-smart-home and human-robot interaction present some examples. In order to offer person-specific services for/of specific person a pre-identifying step should be done in the run-up. Using biometric in such application is encountered by diverse challenges. First, using one trait and excluding the others depends on the application aimed to. Some applications demand directly touch to biometric sensors, while others don't. Second challenge is the reliability of used biometric arrangement. Civilized application demands lower reliability comparing to the forensics ones. And third, for biometric system could only one trait be used (uni-modal systems) or multiple traits (Bi- or Multi-modal systems). The latter is applied, when systems with a relative high reliability are expected. The main aim of this paper is providing a comprehensive view about biometric and its application. The above mentioned challenges will be analyzed deeply. The suitability of each biometric sensor according to the aimed application will be deeply discussed. Detailed com-parison between uni-modal and Multi-modal biometric system will present which system where to be utilized. Privacy and security issues of biometric systems will be discussed too. Three scenarios of biometric application in home-environment, human-robot-interaction and e-health will be presented.
