CSIRO uses kinetic harvesting on wearables to open gait security

0

Researchers from the CSIRO have said they have opened the door to using a person’s walking patterns as a form of authentication, thanks to the ability to harvest energy from movement on wearable devices. In the solution [PDF] put forward by the CSIRO, rather than using a battery-draining accelerometer to measure a person’s movement, the output voltage from a kinetic energy harvester (KEH) is used to recognise an individual.
