Biometric Researchers

Biometric recognition systems are starting to go mainstream (for example in Identity Cards), so I have collected all of the links that I have found so far for different biometrics researchers. They incude the following:

You can get automated fingerprinting systems cheaply from digital persona to replace logon passwords.

You have fingerprint and face recognition being developed by identix.com.

Iris scanning is available from iris-scan.

Southampton University are trying to recognise the way people walk (gait analysis). They are not there yet, but they are improving.

A problem that has arisen recently is the lack of checking that the user is still alive. A car driver recently had his thumb removed by thieves so that they could steal his biometrically secured car.
