MAN AND WOMAN DISTINCTION USING THERMOGRAPHY

Satoshi Nishino, Igarashi Sachiyo, Atsushi Matsuda

Abstract

Man and woman distinction is necessary to strengthen security and when various statistics on the visitor are taken in commercial facilities and so on. The conventional method of distinguishing a man from a woman is currently determined by using the person's appearance, the person's dress and in such cases, the way a person walks, the foot pressure, the hair type. But, these characteristics can be intentionally changed by human intervention or design. The proposed method gets the difference in the man's and woman's characteristics by taking images of the heat distribution of the person's face by Thermography. This is a man and woman distinction based on a new concept and idea which this is used for. Consequently, this can be used to distinguish a man from a woman even if a man turns himself into the woman intentionally (and vice versa), because this method involves biometrics authentication.
