Goodix picks up an Edison Award for its Live Finger Detection sensor

April 28, 2017 - 

Goodix has been awarded a Gold Edison Award in the Applied Technology category for its Live Finger Detection fingerprint sensor.

The 2017 Edison Awards were held in New York earlier this month. The Edison Awards recognize products, institutions and business leaders demonstrating excellence in innovation.

Goodix’s Live Finger Detection is an integrated live fingerprint authentication solution that captures the biometrics of the finger itself combined with heartbeat authentication. The two-factor process first scans to determine whether or not the fingerprint is live.

The sensor is able to detect and deny fake or cloned 2D and 3D fingerprints, enhancing the security and user experience. Besides mobile devices, the technology can also be used in wearable devices, intelligent homes, smart cars and smartcard products. Live Finger Detection has been named a CES 2017 Best of Innovation Awards Winner in the Embedded Technologies Category and has been integrated into the flagship mobile phones of leading mobile brands.

“By focusing on people’s desires while understanding their needs, Goodix strives to deliver disruptive technologies that make human interface technology in devices more secure and even easier to use and enjoy, enriching people’s lives globally,” commented Goodix CTO Dr. Bo Pi.

Last year, Dr. Bo Pi discussed the company`s strong commitment to research and development in an exclusive interview with BiometricUpdate.com.
