Fujitsu Frontech North America announced it will be demonstrating PalmSecure biometric solutions, along with currency handling technology and RFID solutions at the Global Gaming Expo from September 30 to October 2.
Held at The Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, G2E is a massive gaming conference and exhibition that attracts over 25,000 attendees and over 400 exhibitors.
Fujitsu will also be demonstrating PalmSecure biometrics technology, which can be implemented to positively authenticate users in a range of applications including time and attendance, physical access control and single sign-on.
The vascular pattern recognition technology provides highly reliable authentication with low false accept and reject rates, creates rapid and easy enrollment, and is extremely difficult to “spoof.”
The biometric palm vein sensors use a near-infrared light to analyze a person’s unique palm vein pattern, which generates a biometric blueprint that is compared to the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users.
The PalmSecure device does not directly touch the skin, ensuring that it remains hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin types and ailments.
The PalmSecure technology is at the core of Fujitsu’s entire biometric solutions line, including PalmSecure sensors, PalmSecure for SSO and the PalmEntry Physical Access Control system.
“By integrating our technologies with cash carts, casino operators will have the ability to monitor the amount of cash at pick-up per cassette, the time of pick-up, the location of pick-up, and positively authenticate the identity of the individuals transporting the cash,” said Randy Fox, VP of currency handling and identity product solutions at Fujitsu Frontech North America. “In addition, with the application of Fujitsu RFID technology, they will have the ability to track the physical location of the cash from the gaming table to the back office cash room.”
Previously reported, Bitcoin currency and cash dispensing firm Robocoin is using Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometrics technology to positively authenticate customers on its entire global network of Robocoin ATMs.
