Biometric Identification

Student projects in biometric identification

Decades ago, biometric identification methods were only used in special areas of application (forensics, access to high-security areas), but nowadays biometric identification is almost everywhere (just think about biometric passports). For us at CP, the whole variety of biometric traits (finger, face, iris, retina, hand, ear, voice, signature, gait, etc.) is of interest. 

These student projects can be started any time (including holidays) and can be span over semester boundaries.

Contact for these topics: Josef Scharinger

Remark: I am open for new proposals – if you are interested in biometric identification topics just contact me!
