The article states that the University of Southampton in Southampton, England, has demonstrated a security system that identifies people by the way they walk. Dr. John Carter, a researcher in Southampton's Intelligent Systems Research Group, said that the system uses eight video cameras and build a 3D model. Data from four wide-angle and four narrower cameras is processed by five computers.
