Major Biometrics Project at Kent

The Image Processing and Computer Vision Research Group within the Department of Electronics at the University of Kent is currently seeking volunteers over the age of 18 to participate in one or more research studies in Biometrics. This is a great opportunity to contribute to the advancement of science in an increasingly important area of technology and each volunteer will be paid a minimum of £20 and up to £60.
The aim of the research is to develop multimodal biometric databases which will be used in the research and development of the next generation of identification technologies. The studies involve the (non-invasive) collection of biometric data (such as 2D and 3D facial images, CCTV footage, samples of speech, hand and fingerprints and iris images) from individual volunteers. Up to 300 volunteers aged 18 or above are required for the data capture.
The biometric data collected will be associated with a user number, not name, and so each volunteer’s identity will be properly protected. The biometric samples will only ever be made available to research teams for the purpose of evaluating multimodal biometric technology. The results of the evaluations will be documented and are likely to be published in the scientific literature to help others benefit from the research. No participant will be identified individually in publication, and no biometric samples will appear in any publication or report without express permission from that participant.
