University Twente - Group of Signals and Systems (UTW)

Core business and skills

The UT group of Signals and Systems (SAS) performs research on digital signal processing, with biometric recognition and image processing as two of the main areas. The research on biometrics is theoretical as well as applied. Examples of theoretical work involve results on multi-user verification and on dimension reduction in a likelihood-ratio framework. SAS has a strong experience in fingerprint recognition. Together with the UT group DIES, SAS has developed a new biometric authentication method called grip-pattern recognition, based on the unique way that someone holds an object.


UTW will concentrate on WP2.2 3D Acquisition Research and WP2.3 3D Face Recognition Algorithm.
