Development
Status: 
finished
Brief description: 
Mobile biometric devices, such as iris, face, and fingerprint readers, assist responders in obtaining accurate identifications in the field in near real-time—if a person has a past criminal record or an active warrant
Research
Status: 
planned
Brief description: 

MobilePass focuses on research and development towards technologically advanced mobile equipment at land border crossing points to allow border control authorities to check European, visa-holding and frequent third country travellers in a comfortable, fast and secure way. The mobile solution incorporates new technologies needed in mobile scenarios and embeds them in the actual border crossing workflow to speed up control procedures.

MobilePass brings together system- and component producers, research institutions and governmental authorities. The entire innovation process, from components development to the integration into an efficient workflow will continuously be evaluated by border guard authorities.

Brief description: 

Prediction and Interpretation of human behaviour based on probabilistic structures and heterogeneous sensors (PROMETHEUS) project intends to establish a link between fundamental sensing tasks and automated cognition processes that concern the understanding of short-term prediction of human behaviour as well as complex human interaction. The analysis of human behaviour in unrestricted environments, including localization and tracking of multiple people and recognition of their activities, currently constitutes a topic of intensive research in the signal processing and computer vision communities. This research is driven by different important applications, including unattended surveillance and intelligent space monitoring.
