New Idiap biometrics applications is born!

A new prototype of mobile finger-vein sensor for portable or embedded biometrics applications is born!
The Idiap research institute and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland jointly developed a prototype of mobile finger-vein sensor for portable or embedded biometrics applications.

Most of the technologies for finger-vein capture are based on a transmission technique of Near-Infrared Light (NIR), while the developed prototype is based on a reflexion technique using an innovative configurationĀ of NIR illumination.

This work was jointly funded by the European project FP7 BEAT, the HES-SO project VERA and the Swiss Center for Biometrics Research and Testing.
