New Lab Develops Security Shoe Sole ID System

In Pittsburgh (US) the lab (having $1.5 million in startup funding) partnering with a Canadian company Autonomous ID works to improve the shoe insoles to monitor access to high-security areas. Since 2009 Autonomous ID has been developing a prototype of the relatively inexpensive ID system. The research behind the concept explains that each person has unique feet and the way of walking. Sensors in the bio-soles check the pressure of feet and compare the patters to a master file for the person. If they don’t match, a wireless alarm message can go out; if they do match the bio-soles go to sleep. This technology is less privacy invasive than, let’s say an eye scan and other biometrics, because the personal data stays inside the soles. These bio-soles may have medical applications too.
