Sensor based gait recognition
A team led by research professor Heikki Ailisto has created a security system for mobile phones, laptops and other electronic devices, based
on identifying owners' walking styles. The system involves sensors, which monitor their owners' walking styles. Because
devices such as mobile phones and PDAs were often kept in pockets or belt clips, the sensors actively monitor the way
the owner walks when the device is used for the first time. The measurements are saved in the sensor's memory and the
sensors then monitor the walking style of anyone who carries the device.
