Reliable collection of biometric samples in the field requires industry-grade mobile biometric hardware and solutions.
Coppernic and Innovatrics are working together to address these requirements to improve the results for police, coast guards and law enforcement.
Coppernic produces biometric enrollment devices to be used sometimes in extreme conditions – and they still must be fully functional.
Off-the-shelf tablets, even with customized operating systems, just don’t cut it.
For biometric algorithms, Coppernic has turned to Innovatrics, a provider of highly-accurate, resource-light fingerprint and facial recognition algorithms.
For optimal results, a good user interface (UI) and device design is of utmost importance, explains Rob Vandervecht, Chief Marketing Officer of the French company Coppernic.
The interface helps collect fingerprints and photos in optimum quality. Badly enrolled fingerprints can create problems e.g. when using biometric verification for elections, as they would prevent people from voting. Other challenges arise from infrastructural issues, such as bad or non-existent data connection or lack of electricity. Sturdy hardware design with a mobile-specific operating system has to account for those as well.
The UI is built around the specific needs of each customer.
The devices must be sturdy, with fingerprint readers resilient enough to be used e.g. on high seas.
The app itself has to be smart enough to conserve battery life and collect biometric samples in optimal quality even when the enrollees have never used a similar device. Once again, UI must be tested for the specific use case, otherwise the biometric data might become compromised.
The devices can connect to the biometric database, but are also able to perform quick identification right on the device. The Innovatrics algorithms powering the identification are optimized for performance, increasing battery life on the devices.
Innovatrics is an independent, trusted partner for biometric identity management technology. The company has completed more than 500 projects in 80 countries with over a billion people having been biometrically processed using Innovatrics software. The award-winning Innovatrics algorithms provide best-in-class speed and accuracy for projects of all sizes and guarantee the highest level of performance.
Coppernic designs, produces, and deploys professional-grade handheld devices for use with control and traceability applications including Public Transportation Ticketing, Mobile Biometric Identification, Mobile Access Control and the Traceability of Goods & Materials.
We have successfully deployed and supported mobile device systems ranging from 1 to over 10,000 devices in a wide variety of markets. We provide comprehensive support packages and expertise in mobile security, data connectivity, mobile device management and analytics.
