This patent covers a method than can authenticate a person using earphones, thanks to the movement of the mouth. The earphones record the shape of the ear canal during a predefined movement of the mandible and a machine learning algorithm handles the recordings to identify the person. Once the algorithm has identified the person, they can connect to device whenever their earphones are inserted, without touching the device.
Authentication methods are fundamental because they guarantee security and privacy of people’s activities through electronic devices. Biometrics are regularly used for authentication because they combine excellent levels of security and usability. This invention allows people to authenticate to their device through their earphones.

  • Devices and Method for Calibrating Industrial Robots

    This invention shows a tool, a calibration element and a method for calibration of a mechatronic system. The idea behind this invention is to make the body of a calibration tool designed so that the tool itself can be coupled[...]

  • A resilient and user-friendly CAPTCHA

    In order to protect on line services form malicious attacks, access is only granted to users by solving a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart) to distinguish a human user from a malicious software[...]

  • A method for self-calibration of mmWave radar networks from moving target trajectories

    The proposed technique computes the roto-translation parameters of multiple mmWave radar devices respect to a reference coordinate system. The method calibrates radars in pairs and it is based on computing the optimal rigid transformation that matches the movement trajectories of[...]
