Abstract

This paper proposes a system for authentication based on seating pressure distribution, using the MT system as a new method of biometric authentication that is difficult to forge and does not inconvenience users. The main characteristic is that the only action required of the user is to sit down. Feature values were extracted based on the pressure distribution when individuals seat, and individual users were distinguished from other persons by means of the Mahalanobis-Taguchi (MT) system used in quality engineering. The result of the experiment was a False Rejection Rate of 2.2% and a False Acceptance Rate of 1.1%.
