EyeLock iris recognition tech integrated into vending machine solution


EyeLock announced today it has integrated its embedded iris recognition technology into ViaTouch Media’s auto-retail solution. According to the announcement, VICKI has been designed to change the vending landscape by implementing highly secure transactions and access control.

VICKI is an IoT, self-checkout solution for retail, powered by artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. VICKI can recognize and authenticate consumers, learn their preferences and then act on them, serving as a virtual clerk. The retailing system is equipped with smart shelves that know what and how much is on each, which products consumers look at, what they take/put back and view on display.

“With a multitude of innovations included in this machine, the addition of EyeLock iris authentication technology creates an even greater separation between VICKI and current vending solutions,” said Jeff Carter, EyeLock CEO. “In particular, it provides a level of security significantly greater than fingerprint or facial recognition.”

EyeLock’s technology is embedded directly into the machine and the total solution is integrated and operable with First Data’s online payment networks.

VICKI is available now and initial deployments will be on ViaTouch machines launched on university campuses, in hotels and hospitals as well as select retail partners.

Earlier this month EyeLock was issued a patent that brings biometric authentication to the network level.
