Mastercard is Working on a New Biometrics Tool That Identifies Commuters Based on the Way They Walk

The Infinite Brief
Mastercard is working with transport firms to develop a new system that would authenticate passengers by their gait.

The company is investigating innovative behavioral biometrics such as gait, face, heartbeat and veins for cutting edge payment systems of the future.

Closed-circuit television cameras would identify passengers approaching transport barriers.

Once the system recognizes the individual, it would let them pass after matching them with an account that is in credit or linked to a valid payment card.
