ECG Biometric Identification - A Review

Authors(2) :-Sunil Kumar, Bipan Kaushal

The electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the latest biometric modality. This paper takes into account most of the technique which are applied to use the electrocardiogram as a biometric identification. Here we differentiate the approach based on features and classification scheme finally a comparative study of authentication performance of few ECG biometric is presented by using available database. The comparative analysis includes the cases where training and testing data is received from different sessions of same day or from different days. In this authentication process it is observed that most of the algorithm perform as per requirement when training data is received from the same session but a degradation occur when data is received from the different session. Due to degradation in performance, multiple training sessions are used.
