Skylabs offers a range of biometric solutions that include Face Scanners, Fingerprint Scanners, and RFID-enabled biometrics. Each of these solutions serves different application areas, utilizes specific technologies, and falls under distinct types of biometric machines. Here's an overview of each:
- Application Area: Face scanners are used for facial recognition and authentication. They find application in security and access control, identity verification, attendance tracking, and surveillance systems.
- Technology: Face scanners use facial recognition algorithms to capture and analyse facial features. These algorithms detect unique facial landmarks and patterns, converting them into biometric templates for matching and identification.
- Type of Biometric Machine: Face scanners are a type of non-contact biometric device that captures facial images and performs facial recognition without physical interaction.
- Application Area: Fingerprint scanners are employed for fingerprint recognition and verification. They are widely used for access control, time and attendance tracking, border control, and forensic identification.
- Technology: Fingerprint scanners capture the unique patterns present in a person's fingerprints, such as ridges and valleys. These patterns are converted into fingerprint templates and are used for comparison and identification.
- Type of Biometric Machine: Fingerprint scanners can be contact-based or contactless, with contact-based scanners requiring the user to physically touch the scanning surface and contactless scanners capturing prints without direct contact.
- Application Area: RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)-enabled biometrics combine RFID technology with biometric authentication methods to enhance security and convenience. These are often used in access control, asset tracking, and supply chain management.
- Technology: RFID involves using radio waves to transmit data between a tag (carried by a person or attached to an object) and a reader. When combined with biometrics, the RFID tag may contain unique identification information linked to a person's biometric data.
- Type of Biometric Machine: RFID-enabled biometric systems include both RFID readers and the associated biometric scanning technology. The biometric aspect could involve fingerprint or facial recognition for additional authentication.
