Idiap develops mobile finger-vein sensor prototype

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

The Idiap Research Institute announced it has developed a new mobile finger-vein sensor prototype for portable or embedded biometrics applications.

The research group said the prototype is based on a reflexion technique that uses a unique configuration of NIR illumination.

This technique differs greatly from other finger-vein capture technologies which typically use the transmission technique of near-infrared light.

Jointly developed with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland, the mobile finger-vein sensor project is funded by European project FP7 BEAT, the HES-SO project VERA and the Swiss Center for Biometrics Research and Testing.

Reported previously, engineers from the Idiap Research Institute are currently developing a new vein reading biometric watch called BioWatch, enabling users to own and control the watch themselves.
