Biometrics in action

The last few years have seen a much wider application of biometric technology to improve access control and security. This article cites several of these uses, which demonstrate the potential of biometric identification.  Here are a few of these applications.

  • A major U.S. prison system uses fingerprint scanning to track and control prisoner movements throughout its facilities.
  • A recent Super Bowl employed facial feature recognition technology to verify identities.
  • Ybor City, FL began comparing surveillance camera images to its database of 30,000 images of wanted felons and missing children using facial recognition.

Future applications of biometric ID include the possible use of facial recognition technology for airport security and the potential for iris scans to control facility access.  For more information on biometric ID, contact us.
