Door Opening Cognitive and Adaptive Validation System

There are several available means to validate and authorize the door opening, different from using physical keys. Most often biometric parameters are used for this goal: finger prints, eye scans, face recognition. But normally there is only one of these means in use, and the available solutions are not adaptive to the user sudden needs: for example a broken arm, or hands busy with bags, or eye diseases.

In this article, we describe a cognitive and adaptive system and a method which selects the most appropriate opening validation method based on user needs and habits. The selection is based on the learned history and on the detection of current situation to choice the best method to validate door opening. All the validation systems in place are used as valid alternatives and are selected based on user preferences, on learned user habits and on detection of current situation.

The system records each person (for example a member of the family) authorized to access a certain place by opening a certain door (for example the house door) by using a certain set of means ranging from the physical key, to badges, or to biometric solutions, in a fixed or adaptive way. For example, the person having in charge the house cleaning, is only entitled to use the physical key. The owner of the house is entitled to use all of them.

Not all the validation systems are active at the same time. The system decides the best one to use. In order to decide which method to use, there are cameras whi...
