Contactless fingerprint scanner prototype tested by border guards

AIT has developed a dedicated, secure and mobile device for law enforcement agencies (LEAs) for biometric identification (eMRTD, Face, Finger) and travel document inspection on the move. A typical application is border control. The platform combines leading-edge technologies including contactless fingerprint scanning, facial verification, optical passport scanning and passport chip reading. In contrast to existing mobile solutions, the hardware itself is a trusted platform module with encrypted operating systems and applications. 3G/4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity ensure interoperability with other IT systems. The system is based on a MPSoC design (multiprocessor system-on-chip) which paves the way for future applications such as iris scanning.
