Abstract

This paper presents a new feature extraction method known as Pulse Active Width (PAW) implemented on electrocardiogram (ECG) for biometric authentication. This method is developed based on the concept of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). A total of 196 ECGs from 98 subjects, taken from the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) database are used in the simulations. Biometric performance profile such as the area under ROC (AUR) and equal error rate (EER) are then used to evaluate the results. It is shown that the PAW method outperforms conventional temporal feature extraction techniques
