Biometric identity​

Biometric identity products deliver effortless, fast, and highly accurate biometric enrollment and identification. Designed for high throughput identification and verification, in other words, these products are the future of identity access for traveling. As complicated as it might sound, Thaumatec built a group of engineers within a short notice period and decided to embark on this biometrics software development challenge.

Biometrics
definition

“The term biometrics is derived from the Greek words bio meaning life and metric meaning to measure.” Biometrics is a science, based on measuring and analyzation unique physical and behavioral characteristics of people. With the broader availability of technology now it’s possible to use biometrics for identification or access control in many different areas of life – security systems, consumer electronics, biometric passports etc.

Tools
we used
Biometrics
scanner

The technology itself can use many different ways to identify people using devices known as biometrics scanners. It makes whole process easier, as it’s not necessary to remember any passwords or carry additional keys. Some of the devices can identify person without the direct contact.

One of the ways to identify a person is to use iris scanner. What is iris scanner? “Iris recognition is an automated method of biometric identification that uses mathematical pattern-recognition techniques on video images of one or both of the irises of an individual’s eyes, whose complex patterns are unique, stable, and can be seen from some distance.”

The
challange

Silicon Valley-based company that develops and deploys biometric identity products and solutions that excel in challenging real-world environments. Each year, tens of millions of people rely on the company’s biometric technologies for secure, seamless travel, public safety, and commerce.

The company was looking a partner with the biometrics software development expertise and capacity to build an airport security scanner. The choice for Thaumatec was based on the fact that Thaumatec managed to put together a skilled team within very short notice and combined with high degree of technical leadership and ownership. Thaumatec builds up a team of different specialists that provide the development services according to the world-class quality and processes. The application of Agile and Scrum in an international setting, with large time zone differences, is a challenge that Thaumatec mastered.

Our way

The biometric identity products involve among others a lot of embedded software development, testing, maintaining and upgrading to stay ahead in the biometrics market place.

Being able to adjust the team size and composition according to the needs of the project, gives the customer the possibility to commit to the different wishes and deadlines of its customers.
