Global Net Solutions launches IoT tracking badge with fingerprint verification
Global Net Solutions has announced the launch of its new IoT-based security credential S-Badge, which protects high security environments like hospitals, and government buildings with three factors including fingerprint verification.
The S-Badge includes a photo ID, and leverages a multi-sensor Bluetooth low-energy beacon, multiple data sensors, and high frequency RFID technology, according to the announcement. It authenticates users based on their location and an individually programmed NFC chip, in addition to biometrics. It also utilizes AI and machine learning to create a threat prediction model.
“In airports, we’re trying to tackle the insider threat,” Michael Elias, director of business development, Global Net Solutions told APEX. “Once you pass through security, no one knows where you are.”
S-Badge continuously tracks individuals, and Elias says “if you lose it, no one else can use it.” He also said in the announcement that the S-Badge does not track individuals when they are at home or off duty.
Other features of the S-Badge include a LoRa Transceiver Module for low-power long range radio communication, a panic button, wireless charging, and flexible support for cloud or on-premise infrastructure.
“Existing systems and standards are riddled with flaws – they’re simply outdated. Also, there is a gold mine of data that, up until now, has been completely ignored,” Elias comments. “What we came up with is the first complete system designed to work in any environment – it’s scalable, easy to use and can be deployed immediately.”
He also told APEX that the company is exploring using the technology for a government ID or e-passport application.
