FP5 and FP6 Project Catalog

Name Human monitoring and authentication using biodynamic indicators and behavioural analysis
Acronym HUMABIO
Area IST-2004-2.4.3 Towards a global dependability and security framework
Start Date2006-01-01
Duration30 months
StatusCompleted
DescriptionHUMABIO is a STREP where new types of biometrics are combined with state of the art sensorial technologies in order to enhance security in a wide spectrum of applications.
Several shortcomings in biometric authentication will be addressed in the course of HUMABIO which will provide the basis for improving existing sensors, develop new algorithms, procedures and applications, towards creating an Ambient Intelligence Space in security sensitive, controlled environments with increased security requirements.
In particular, research will be focused on these issues: scientific/technological (such as biodynamic authenticating indicators and physiological state diagnosis); user-centred (such as acceptance, usability and legal framework); and application-related (such as continuous authentication, secure interoperable biometrics and emotional staging and monitoring).
Performance evaluation will be conducted throughout the whole project in a sound and statistically relevant way, under a specifically-created committee control. Significant efforts will be devoted to contributions to standards, co-operation with existing organisations (such as NoE), and to dissemination of the results.
HUMABIO activities include development of pilots in various scenarios (such as transportation safety and continuous authentication in controlled environments) for which important final users have already been involved. Other technological deployments will be made during the project lifetime, driven by the first successful research results; the participation of big industrial partners (with big customers) ensures a very large catchments area.
A strong management with well established roles and responsibilities ensures proper decisions to be promptly taken in order to successfully drive the project towards its ambitious objectives.
