Fast. Touch-free. Frictionless. In-motion. Easy to install. These are all adjectives that many end users couldn’t have imagined associated with reliable biometric technology a decade ago, never mind a couple of years ago. Yet, these are the latest trends across all authentication technologies, from fingerprint to facial to iris recognition, experts say.
The battle for the future of biometric modalities in consumer electronics is expected to become fiercer with each passing year as face and iris recognition are continuously gaining strength, threating to soon cannibalize on fingerprint technologies. ABI Research, a market-foresight advisory firm providing strategic guidance on the most compelling transformative technologies, posits that as ASPs for iris modules drop, and the once timid face recognition is continuously honed with more sophisticated machine learning algorithms, they will both slowly start to eat away at fingerprint implementations.

Boon Edam, Booth 8037: The Boom Edam Circlelock Half Portal mantrap solution attaches to any existing swing door, transforming it into a high-security entrance that requires no supervision, while saving space and reducing construction costs.
Identiv, Inc. is partnering with Corvus Integration, a provider of biometric, identity management, and security solutions. In this partnership, Corvus integrates the Identiv 4501 contact and contactless smart card reader board into its recently launched Corvus Tetrad biometric solution, used for border patrol to enhance security through a combined biometric and smart card solution. The Identiv smart card reader supports the latest security standards, including contact International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) 7816, contactless ISO/IEC 14443 and near field communication (NFC).
Los Angeles Airport is trialing an advanced biometric self-boarding solution by Vision-Box to clear travelers flying out of the U.S. in a contactless, quick and secure way. The new passenger flow solution allows travelers to board their aircraft in just a few seconds simply by looking into a high-resolution face capture system at the flow-control gateway.
