Developing The Electrocardiogram as a Unique Biometric Identifier
City:Mississauga, ON

Abstract:This project was done to test the possibilities of electrocardiograms as unique biometric identifiers. Through visual analysis and the creation of a digital software, it attempted to study if the characteristics of one's ECG were variant enough from person to person to be used as a biometric identifier, similar to fingerprint or iris recognition; however, without the disadvantages of possible replicas and recording hazards.
