Moonwalk: Advancing Gait-Based User Recognition on Wearable Devices with Metric Learning

*=Equal Contributors
Personal devices have adopted diverse authentication methods, including biometric recognition and passcodes. In contrast, headphones have limited input mechanisms, depending solely on the authentication of connected devices. We present Moonwalk, a novel method for passive user recognition utilizing the built-in headphone accelerometer. Our approach centers on gait recognition; enabling users to establish their identity simply by walking for a brief interval, despite the sensor’s placement away from the feet. We employ self-supervised metric learning to train a model that…
