Abstract

Biometrics and soft biometrics characteristics are of great
importance in forensics applications for identifying criminals
and law enforcement. Developing new biometrics and
soft biometrics are therefore of interest of many applications,
among them forensics. Heartbeat signals have been
previously used as biometrics, but they have been measured
using contact-based sensors. This paper extracts heartbeat
signals, using a contact-free method by a simple webcam.
The extracted signals in this case are not as precise as those
that can be extracted using contact-based sensors. However,
the contact-free extracted heartbeat signals are shown in this
paper to have some potentials to be used as soft biometrics.
Promising experimental results on a public database, have
shown that utilizing these signals can improve the accuracy
of spoofing detection in a face recognition system.
