Rhino Touch is a touch screen kiosk that incorporates contact, contact-less, and magnetic stripe read capabilities, plus a Lumidigm biometric sensor. Its initial function is to test PIV and TWIC cards by running them through a sequence of test to verify that they are fully functional – full certificate validation, fingerprint verification, personal data, etc. If a security officer thinks a card may be in question they can run it through the full test in less than a minute to validate the card, the user against the card and the data on the card. We also plan to evolve the product to be used as a self-enrollment station. An individual arriving at a new facility will walk up to the enrollment kiosk, validate their credentials, be verified against the card fingerprint template and their PIN number, and have the self-enrollment queued to proceed through access rights process at the facility

Our big differentiator is that we work in a less constrained environment so we can do iris recognition on the move, at a distance and now we have also added in various lighting conditions including in broad daylight. We are currently developing the ability to do iris recognition at an off-angle. You don’t even have to be looking exactly straight on. We’ve been doing some research in that area and it is possible to recognize irises at an off-angle. Our product line starts with the N-Glance, which is really the lowest price unit that we have designed for doorway access control. We have indoor and outdoor versions of that. I think we are the only company that does promote the ability to do iris recognition outside. In fact, we use it here at our facility in Princeton for our employees at the front door to gain access. So instead of using their RFID card they can use iris to enter the building. We are also introducing a drive-through system, so that you can…

Research & Markets Announces the Release of ‘Silicon-based Fingerprint Sensors – Global Strategic Business Report’

February 26, 2013 Biometrics is a technique to identify one or more individuals by way of physiological traits or behavioral characteristics. Of the several techniques available such as hand geometry, iris/retinal scan, signature identification, keystroke dynamics/typing rhythms, face and voice recognition, fingerprinting is the most popular. The role of fingerprint authentication has grown considerably due…

Brand New Signs Agreement with Iris ID

Biometric identity and access management continues to enjoy growth despite the fact that it has never worked 100% successfully using only a traditional fingerprint scan.
