This work explores the integration of behavioural biometrics in the physical world. We developed SenseHandle, a system to unobtrusively measure users’ interactions with door handles, thus, enabling authentication on demand. Our system is based on consumer sensing technologies from related work for easy replicability and can be non-invasively integrated into existing environments with lever-style door handles. From an initial pilot test with four participants we compare the performance of the technologies we used and discuss possible improvements and applications beyond authentication.
