TBS tests its biometric access control tech with identical twins

November 14, 2017 - 

Touchless Biometric Systems (TBS) recently welcomed SRF, Swiss Radio and Television broadcasting company, to demonstrate its latest biometric access control technology with identical twins.

TBS demonstrated that its 3D FACE facial recognition device, 2D EYE iris recognition device and the 3D TERMINAL touchless fingerprint reader treated each individual differently, even those who seem identical to the naked eye.

The demonstration was broadcasted nationally by the SRF.

Apple recently admitted that its Face ID authentication feature may not be able to distinguish between identical twins, and in such cases, recommends customers to use a passcode to safeguard private information instead. And last year, facial recognition software used by Georgia’s Department of Motor Vehicles was unable to differentiate between teenage twin sisters applying for driving permit.
