Biometrics 101

Recent advancements in biometric technology have allowed us to collect biometrics while a person is walking. Also called "on the move" or "on the go", these systems collect various biometrics without the user having to stop or touch anything.

The technology is still in the early stages of development, but the advantages in terms of usability are obvious. Also obvious are the nefarious ways the technology could be used to monitor people who are unaware that their biometrics are being collected, an issue that will be important for public policy in the future.
