TrinamiX under-display face biometrics to debut at MWC
Face authentication software maker trinamiX says it will showcase under-display sensing at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event, which will take place in Barcelona between February 27 and March 2.
The company, a German subsidiary of chemical giant BASF, says it will be the first live demonstration of its product.
The sensor is designed for future, notchless phones. Developed with chipmaker STMicroelectronics and vehicle aftermarket firm Continental, the authentication sensor can be integrated beneath a phone’s display.
TrinamiX also says that MWC conferencegoers will be able to test firsthand the company’s presentation attack detection (PAD) capabilities by wearing three-dimensional masks.
STMicroelectronics will use the event to show practical integration of trinamiX’s face authentication with consumer electronics.
TrinamiX‘s under-display biometrics reportedly can provide personal health and fitness insights as well. The sensor will use near-infrared spectroscopy in phones and watches to measure physical conditions.
It is the first time, according to trinamiX, that it has mounted a functional prototype of this miniaturized spectrometer inside a phone-like environment.
Other companies reportedly working on under-display biometric technologies include Apple, Fingerprint Cards, and Samsung.
TrinamiX also says it has been working with Continental to apply its face biometrics software to the automotive industry, integrating it into Continental’s in-cabin driver display.
The driver ID display is designed to securely start a vehicle and authorize payments.
