Mobile Biometrics: Trends and Issues

Slides (pdf)Video


Mobile biometrics is useful when a handheld or movable identifying solution is needed. More recently, smart phones provide built-in biometric solutions for unlocking a phone and extend their usages in FinTech, IoT and Healthcares, In this lecture, trends on mobile biometrics are introduced with some empirical works in implementing multiple mobile biometrics. Mobile iris and fingerprint recognition will be discussed more in detail, and empirical works on phone include touchless fingerprint recognition, iris recognition and touchless palmprint recognition.
