At last month’s Connect:ID expo in Washington, DC, the exhibition hall featured 50 organizations and companies in the digital identity and biometrics technologies space.
Among them was SRI International, an American nonprofit research institute that was originally founded as Stanford Research Institute.
Mark A. Clifton, vice president for products and services at SRI International, demonstrated the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, which integrates SRI’s iris recognition solution Iris on the Move (IOM) in the Samsung Galaxy 8.4 to provide iris recognition capabilities.
In the video, Clifton shows how the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 with integrated IOM differs from other biometric readers in that it allows the user to glance and go, unlike other iris recognition readers which require users to stop or to position their eyes close to a camera.
As demonstrated by Clifton, the Samsung tablet integrated with Iris on the Move biometric system combines the accuracy of iris recognition with a fast and convenient solution for secure access control and identity authentication.
In recent tests of SRI’s IOM, the technology’s results showed that it is more than 1,000 times more accurate than published fingerprint data.
Clifton also points out that the device offers numerous applications, making it an effective biometric authentication tool for custom border agents, police, employees, and officials in disaster relief situations.
SRI will be demonstrating the tablet this week at ISC West 2015, booth 3089.
