Fingerprint Cards releases face and iris biometric authentication platform for mobile, IoT
Fingerprint Cards has introduced a touchless authentication platform dubbed ‘Touchless 2.0’ that integrates biometric facial and iris recognition to enhance security and usability for mobile and IoT OEMs, the company announced.
Touchless 2.0 can be used independently or integrated with a more complex multimodal biometric authentication solution that includes fingerprint touch sensors. The platform works in any environment, the company says, regardless of weather conditions and can be applied to mobile devices, payments, automotive and access scenarios.
Fingerprint Cards claims its new generation solution delivers three times better FRR (false rejection rate) and runs from up to 50 cm (roughly 20 inches) without requiring guidance for face and eye placement.
“As a company at the forefront of biometric innovation, we are constantly looking to develop and improve our products,” says Pontus Jägemalm, CTO at Fingerprint Cards. “Iris recognition is a proven way to securely authenticate a user and by combining it with face recognition, our improved touchless portfolio now seamlessly balances trust with convenience, regardless of the form factor it’s deployed in.”
Fingerprint Cards’ fingerprint sensor technology has been integrated with a number of smartphones such as Huawei P20 Lite, Huawei Y9 Prime, Honor 20 Lite, LG Aristo 3+, LG STYLE2, and LG Stylo 5. In September, the company confirmed its sensor was included in Samsung Galaxy A10s. CEO Christian Fredrikson said earlier this year that the company’s share of revenue from products beyond smartphones is continuing to increase.
