Nedap, a developer of access control security systems, has had vein-based biometric technology introduced to its AEOS physcial access control system with help from technology developer Hitachi, according to a Security Park article.
Hitachi’s finger-vein technology, which utilizes infrared light to obtain a graphic map of the unique vein structure in a person’s finger, that has been utilized in the new AEOS system is also used in Hitachi’s own VeinID products.
Aeos says vascular imaging technology offers many advantages to other modes of biometrics. Among them is its ability to be contactless and being near foolproof with very few false negatives. The foolproof nature of the technology is due to its requiring a live sample while its lower false negative results is due to it not being concerned with quality of skin or various temporary skin issues.
