Paper Abstract

One goal of our research is to make wireless distributed pyroelectric sensor nodes an alternative to the centralized infrared video sensors, with lower cost, lower detectability, lower power consumption and computation workload, and less privacy infringement. To improve the identification rate and the number of people that can be recognized, one-by-one or simultaneously, we employ multiple sensor nodes to leverage the performance of the distributed sensor system. By using multiple sensor nodes the proposed biometric modality can be extended to the higher-security applications of walker recognition, and facilitate multiple human tracking.
