Biometrics, RFID combined
Apr 1, 2005 12:00 PM
TransCore introduces a secure access control system that combines radio frequency identification (RFID) and biometrics to positively identify both vehicles and drivers from the vehicle lane as they attempt to enter a facility. Completely wireless, this system includes a keychain-attachable fingerprint biometric device that operates from within the vehicle.
The heart of the system is TransCore's SmartWatch SecurePass software, capable of using data gathered from vehicle-mounted RFID transponders, and biometric devices, proximity cards, badges, and other forms of identification.
For initial testing with the United States military, TransCore combined its own RFID technology with the Privaris BPID Security Device, a wireless, handheld device that uses fingerprints to biometrically authenticate its user prior to releasing sensitive or confidential information. System pricing will depend on the configuration of particular installations, including the number of lanes, number of access and exit gates, number of vehicles and users registered in the system, and other factors.
