Sensor Recognizes Fingerprints

May 1, 2001

This fingerprint recognition sensor is presently being integrated into the Who?Vision's e-thenticator MS 3000 PC Card, a standard Type II PC Card. Claimed to provide the ultimate in security, the system takes advantage of the sensor's unique properties. Unlike traditional systems, the sensor does not encounter difficulty with different skin types. Without the need for a light source, the TactileSense polymer generates an image of the fingerprint patterns, identifying unique characteristics that link it to an individual.
