The study of biometrics aims to understand the uniqueness of human physical characteristics, and to develop biometric identification technologies. Remote biometrics address the most challenging problem of biometrics, that of identifying individuals in a watch list from a distance.
From a computing point of view, this is a complex task requiring four issues to be solved. First, the system must be able to recognize individual subjects with minimum errors. Second, this must be able to operate at a distance of up to 50 meters. Third, it must be able to deal with subjects in motion. Finally, the system must function when the subjects are unaware of being observed. Other issues include allowing countermeasures to be made against attacks or providing intelligence for security intervention. No currently commercial system is able to satisfy all of these requirements, and none are error-free.
This comprehensive and innovative handbook covers several aspects of biometrics from the perspective of recognizing individuals at a distance, in motion, and under a surveillance scenario. The book presents both a broad coverage and an in-depth investigation into the most advanced biometric technologies for recognition at a distance, with applications in areas such as border control, surveillance in critical infrastructures, and ambient intelligence.
