Whole hand recognition technology now available from Lumidigm

Lumidigm : 17 September, 2008  (New Product)
Multispectral technology enables non-contact areas such as the palm of the hand to be recognised in breakthrough biometric recognition system from Lumidigm
Lumidigm has applied its multispectral technology to the capture of multiple characteristics of the hand. The ability to image concave areas that are not naturally in contact with the platen is a clear advantage that multispectral technology brings to the challenge of whole hand biometrics. Because the Lumidigm technology is a direct imaging process, all areas of the hand are imaged, easily and quickly, with no special preparation or configuration of the hand. This characteristic permits the operator to easily and quickly capture all of the available biometric data.

A further advantage of Lumidigm's whole hand technology is that it is capable of capturing the thumbprint, four fingerprints and a palmprint all with a single placement of the user's hand on a single sensor. These prints may then be compared to data contained in a variety of standard biometric databases for a wide range of military and forensic applications. The same multispectral technology can also be implemented as a physical access device that can perform multibiometric matching to provide an extremely high level of accuracy and performance, enabling true single-factor 1:N security applications.

'Our robust multispectral imaging technology is a natural fit for whole hand biometrics,' says Rob Rowe, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Lumidigm. Lumidigm's initial whole hand R&D efforts were performed in collaboration with Biometrics Laboratory, Michigan State University, in response to the US Army's call for multimodal biometrics systems under the SBIR program. 'The ability of our technology to perform under conditions where other technologies fail is precisely what makes a multispectral whole hand sensor of significant interest to the Army,' said Rowe.

Lumidigm will be demonstrating its multispectral and multimodal whole hand technology at the Biometrics Consortium Technology Expo in Tampa, Florida from September 23-25, 2008. A portable form factor is planned for deployment in the field by government and commercial partners and could be available in early 2010.
