Idemia successfully pilots contactless biometric access technology at stadium in Japan

Idemia partnered with Japan Aerospace Corporation (JAC) for a pilot of MorphoWave Compact, its frictionless biometric access technology, at Level5 stadium in Japan, the company announced.

MorphoWave Compact can read four fingerprints in under one second by letting users wave hands across the terminal.

At the end of 2019 in Fukuoka, the biometric access control device was demonstrated during the final match of the J2 League. The proof of concept involved two scenarios: a ticketless/handsfree admission for pre-registered customers who no longer needed a physical ticket to the soccer match, and biometric age verification for drinks and food collection at counter.

“Our goal is to enable frictionless access everywhere without compromising security,” said Nobuyoshi Nezu, Managing Director and Vice President of Sales for Idemia Japan in a prepared statement. “IDEMIA has developed MorphoWave Compact, a touchless fingerprint device that enables this, by combining a high level of biometric security with a unique user experience, convenience and speed, which is what environments like a stadium need. We are excited to partner with Japan Aerospace Corporation on this very promising case and look forward to a full rollout of our MorphoWave devices at Level5 Stadium.”

New AI capabilities were added to the MorphoWave Compact to improve user experience and performance last September.

Last month, Idemia’s facial biometric liveness detection technology for identity fraud prevention and remote onboarding was declared iBeta Level 1 and Level 2 compliant, following successful evaluation in third-party testing for Presentation Attack Detection (PAD).
