Biometric Contactless Fingerprint Technologies

Today people want to travel freely, but also safely. Fast and secure access controls, seamless border crossings, queue-less passenger checks at airports, and the rapid identification of individuals are the key to better security and convenience. By using machine-learning methods and exceptionally fast software algorithms, we are developing biometric high-tech sensor systems for identity checks, and fast and secure access control.

We use our prototypes to offer high-level research and development services designed to raise the technology readiness level of identification systems. Working closely with our customers, we prepare models that are tailored to their specific needs.
With our internationally recognized experience in the field of smart border control, and as the Coordinator of key EU-funded projects in this field (see reference projects, last page), we develop novel solutions and prototypes for identifying individuals on the move. We combine ingenious algorithms and embedded hardware and software solutions to realize new access control solutions, ranging from low to high security applications and requirements.

We implement contactless biometric solutions in mobile devices to ease the work of law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and other security services. The new approach of contactless fingerprint capture using a mobile device enhances security, speeds up the border control process, and makes biometric verification less cumbersome and far more hygienic for both individuals and officials.
