Fingerprint Cards (FPC) has introduced FPC SenseTouch, which offers several new features for users of the fingerprint touch sensors to trigger activities using the pressure exerted with their finger.
With the introduction of FPC SenseTouch, Fingerprint Cards offers a total of eight features including FPC SenseTouch, FPC OneTouch, FPC QuickTouch, FPC SafeTouch, FPC MoveTouch, FPC 360Touch, FPC TouchNroll, and FPC EvoTouch.
“FPC SenseTouch enables fingerprint sensors to sense and respond to how hard the user is pressing,” said Lina Andolf-Orup, product marketing manager at Fingerprint Cards. “For example, with FPC SenseTouch, users can hard-press to open a message and soft-press to launch a specific app. This feature is optimal for one-handed operations and allows users to get more deeply involved in their apps in a brand-new way.
“We see that consumer adoption of fingerprint technology is paving the way for new user cases where the fingerprint sensor will bring additional value. We continuously work on developing new innovative solutions and, by introducing new features, we demonstrate our competitive edge as the market leader.”
The company’s full portfolio of features now includes the following: FPC SenseTouch senses the pressure of the user’s finger to trigger activities; FPC OneTouch enables users to unlock their device with a touch; FPC QuickTouch takes 0.15 seconds to verify the user’s fingerprint and trigger activities; FPC SafeTouch adds an extra level of security to the user’s device and applications; FPC MoveTouch enables users to navigate, scroll, swipe and set up smart shortcuts with their fingertips; FPC 360Touch allows the sensor to read and match the user’s fingerprint from any angle; FPC TouchNroll enrolls users and enables them to start using the fingerprint sensor to unlock and verify themselves on their device, and; FPC EvoTouch is a self-learning algorithm that adapts to the user’s changing finger conditions, such as cuts and seasonal changes.
Fingerprint Cards also announced today it has delivered what it calls a ‘world’s-first’ deployment of a fingerprint sensor in a keyboard on the BlackBerry KEYone.
