Handheld and Mobile Biometrics
Handheld units are commonly used in the field by military and law enforcement service organisations for the rapid and accurate identification of individuals. These units, most often feature sensors to capture all three major biometric classes – facial recognition, fingerprint and iris – along with readers for a wide variety of electronic documents including barcodes, passports (MRZ and electronic chip), smart cards, PIV cards and prox cards.
Examples where multi-modal biometric handheld units that include iris recognition are in regular use include US Army Biometrics Automated Toolkit (BAT), US and UK Army BISA (Biometric Identification System for Access) and BDCS (Biometric Data Capture System), and the US Customs and Border Protection Agency Coastguard service. Others are now being supplied to support National ID collection projects in rural areas of Mexico and South America.
Smart Sensors’ technology can be deployed at full accuracy on small footprint PDA processors such as those which run Windows CE, making iris recognition wholly viable for portable low-cost devices.
For specialist product developers, we also have versions that run in embedded systems Linux on DSP and ARM-based CPUs such as the TI OMAP family.
Our technology licensing business model is unbeatable for OEMs in emerging market countries who want to develop their own indigenous products and capability.
