abstract

  • In the recent years, the Electrocardiogram (ECG) based biometric identification has been a subject of considerable research interest. In this paper, we present non-fiducial method for ECG-identification using the short time Fourier transform (STFT), and Frechet mean distance-based algorithms to find the similarity between the STFTs of different people. In this study, we select randomly the training and test data of the ECG in order to test the stability of the method. We apply our proposed method on 124 ECG records of 62 subjects from the publicly available ECG ID database from physionet website. Our preliminary results indicate that the Frechet mean based ECG identification has 96.45% average identification accuracy and therefore can be potentially useful in various applications.
