Carnegie Mellon University's Biometrics Center Selected To House New Pedo-Biometrics Research and Identity Automation Lab
Date:7/18/2012

PITTSBURGH, July 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity science takes a giant leap forward with a new discipline in biometrics. Carnegie Mellon University researchers at the new $1.5 million per year Pedo-Biometrics Research and Identity Automation Lab are teaming up with Autonomous ID, an Ottawa, Canada, company currently relocating operations to the U.S., to test insole sensory system prototypes for a variety of identification uses, from security to detecting the onset of such diseases as diabetes and Parkinson's.

The CMU Pedo-Biometrics Lab, headed by Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Marios Savvides, will provide the roadmap for scientific analysis and algorithm research and development for the new pedo-biometrics discipline, which uses a specially designed insole to monitor foot movement.  

Vladimir Polotski, the chief science and technology officer of Autonomous ID, will work with CMU's Savvides and Vijayakumar Bhagavatula to provide researchers with the instructional technology intrinsic to the emerging science of pedo-biometrics.                         

"This new collaboration is a wonderful way to showcase our ongoing work in the emerging field of biometrics and our growing commitment to integrate innovative lab work with the needs of industry. It also offers wonderful opportunities for fundamental research in pedo-biometrics with potential applications in medical diagnosis, forensic science, privacy, security and automation," said Bhagavatula, a professor of electrical and computer engineering (ECE).

"The establishment of the Pedo-Biometrics Lab at CMU recognizes our technological achievements and we look forward to exploring the new frontier at the univ
