Suprema bringing in-display fingerprint and 3D facial recognition tech to MWC 2018
Suprema will showcase its BioSign 3.0, an AI-based in-display fingerprint algorithm and LookSign, a 3D facial recognition solution for smartphones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona.
BioSign is featured in the Samsung Galaxy J5 2017, and version 3.0 supports in-display sensors. Suprema says in the announcement that the algorithm plays a more critical role in the recognition performance of in-display sensors, due to sensor structure and image characteristics.
LookSign combines near-infrared imaging technology from Suprema’s FaceStation 2 access control terminal with 3D image processing techniques to produce an algorithm optimized for smartphones. It utilizes a surface light source and patterned light to capture 2D and 3D information to provide accurate recognition performance and a high level of security, according to the announcement. FaceStation 2 won a Best Product Award at the Detektor International Awards 2017 with its fast matching speed, high operating illuminance, and low error rate.
“Suprema’s core competitiveness is ongoing technological innovation. BioSign 3.0 and LookSign will showcase a new leap in biometric technology in the smartphone market and attract more smartphone manufacturers,” said Brian Song, CEO at Suprema. “As a fingerprint recognition algorithm technology, BioSign provides superior authentication performance and matching speed even in a small sized fingerprint sensor of 4×3.2mm, and it is an essential solution for applying fingerprint recognition function to mid-to-low range smartphones as well as high-ends.”
Suprema recently showcased a range of biometric access control products at Intersec 2018.
