Measuring heart rate with your face and a camera

July 26th, 2012 § 2 comments

I’m guessing this will have a big impact upon security. An elevated heart rate seems like a good way to look for nervous people. It could be someone that is nervous about flying or it could be someone nervous about the bomb in their underwear.

It’s inevitable that technology and behavioural profiling will replace the current security theater we are witnessing here in the US. We need look no further than Israel for proof of that. In a country that has never not known the threat of violence they have a simple goal at the airport in Tel Aviv.

The goal at Ben-Gurion is to move fliers from the parking lot to the airport lounge in a maximum of 25 minutes.

    Haha, the reason why I read the Isreal security process is because I was curious to know why it took so long as 25 min to move pieces of paper from the parking lot to the lounge and why the were having such a problem with people posting fliers in the parking lot. Foreign countries are weird. lol.
