DescriptionDespite the practical importance and the advantages of biometric solutions to the task of verifying personal identity, their adoption has proved to be slower that predicted. The current market pull, mainly driven by the introduction of governmental applications, is still in its early stage. While technological aspects will still play an important role, demands for more consumer convenience will drive innovation in biometrics, with user-cantered research actions focused on its transparent use, facilitating the ease of interaction with the system. Biometrics on the move is a hottest research topic aimed to acquire biometric data at a distance as a person walks by detection equipment. This drastically reduces the need of user's cooperation, achieving low intrusiveness and thus, high acceptance and transparency. Its applications are very diverse, enhancing the customer experience where large number of people moves through a bottleneck (security checkpoints in airports, access control). It will also make a vast amount of surveillance cameras in non-cooperative or uncontrolled environments suitable for recognition purposes (e.g. placed in hallways or outdoors).
