ABSTRACT
Biometric systems identify users based on behavioral or
physiological characteristics. The advantages of such systems
over traditional authentication methods such as passwords are
well known and hence biometric systems are gradually gaining
ground in terms of usage. This paper explores the feasibility of
automatically and continuously identifying participants in Haptic
systems. Such a biometric system could be used for authentication
in any Haptic based application, such as tele-operation or tele-
training, not only at the beginning of the session, but continuously
and throughout the session as it progresses. In order to test this
possibility, we designed a Haptic system in which position,
velocity, force and torque data from the tool was continuously
measured and stored as users were performing a specific task.
Subsequently, several algorithms and methods were developed to
