Princeton Identity patents three systems for applying iris recognition to new markets
Princeton Identity has been awarded three new patents related to iris recognition technology innovations by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which relate to the application of iris authentication beyond traditional physical security.
The patents are for “Validation of the Right to Access an Object,” “Collecting and Targeting Marketing Data and Information Based upon Iris Identification,” and “Authorization of a Financial Transaction,” according to the announcement. They represent the application of Princeton Identity’s iris authentication to the access, marketing, and financial transaction markets.
The company also serves the access control market, with products including its IOM Access200 product suite, which reached global commercial availability earlier this year.
“We’re extremely excited that the USPTO has recognized Princeton Identity’s latest inventions and team of biometrics experts,” stated Mark Clifton, CEO of Princeton Identity. “With over 11 patented technologies in our portfolio and many more pending, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to creating the most advanced and accurate iris recognition-based solutions to ensure accurate and convenient authentication of people and access to assets.”
Iris recognition technology from Princeton Identity is also featured in the Samsung Galaxy Note9.
