Project: BioSec - Biometric and Security Video Technologies for Identity Authentication and Site-Security Everywhere

Biometric Technology:_x000D__x000D_Biometric technology identifies an individual based on physiological characteristics by matching patterns of live individuals in real time against enrolled records. Leading biometric technologies rely on fingerprint, face, iris and hand patterns. For higher accuracy, more than one form of biometric identification (Multimodal) is required. _x000D__x000D_Biometric devices are COly used by organizations for information/physical access, time and attendance and law enforcement. Such devices are generally integrated into networking infrastructure and installed on fixed locations. _x000D__x000D_Due to cost, complexity of use, space constraints and operating time sensitivity COly in crowded locations, such devices are based on a single biometric identifier. _x000D__x000D_Handheld biometric devices are COly used for law enforcement and mobile payment, carried and activated by an operator. The multimodal biometric approach is more usable COly in law enforcement where small amount of individuals are identified in less time constraints. Having also user interface means, necessarily, make such handheld devices relatively large and heavy._x000D__x000D_Video Verification Technology:_x000D__x000D_Digital video verification technology provides means for remote monitoring and visual check of an event using a video camera, as such it also resolves "false-alarm" problems. _x000D__x000D_A typical video verification alarm system is a micro-controller based device, equipped with a camera, connected to sensors, alerting means and remote communication. It identifies intrusion by sensors or by video-motion-detection techniques. Upon an event it activates local alerts, notifies remote monitor, provides visual information, COtains an event log and records visual information on local storage. One may also "remotely visit" the device for live video monitoring and recording at any time without any connection to an event._x000D__x000D_Video verification devices are integrated into home, business and enterprise security systems and are installed on fixed locations where an intruder may be identified. _x000D__x000D_The Goal:_x000D__x000D_The project's goal is providing on a single device a comprehensive, portable, standalone, compact, light, easy-to-use, easy-to-instal, low-power, low-cost multi-modal biometric and digital video solution for remote identity-authentication, attendance/access control and security video verification solution ("The Product")._x000D__x000D_The Product will provide means for remote identity authentication and site-protection everywhere either indoors or outdoors and at any environmental conditions. The Product will be easily installed in fixed or temporary locations or will be used for handheld applications._x000D__x000D_Although The Produc will have dual functionality still it will be smaller, lighter and significantly less expensive from any of its partially functioning (single functionality) competitors._x000D__x000D_The Market:_x000D__x000D_The Product's unique design will enable addressing new high-volume markets where its wide functionality is required and usable, including remote outdoor automotive, business and government as well as indoor home, business and government applications._x000D__x000D_The Features:_x000D__x000D_Biometric Remote Identity Authentication and Attendance/Access Control_x000D__x000D_- Simultaneous multi-modal fingerprint and face recognition_x000D__x000D_- Enrollment, matching and identification for each biometric modal_x000D__x000D_- Distance sensing and self alignment feedback for face image acquisition_x000D__x000D_- Access/attendance control application_x000D__x000D_- Events log on local storage_x000D__x000D_- Events information SMS_x000D__x000D_- Multimodal templates SMS for remote identity authentication_x000D__x000D_Security Video Verification_x000D__x000D_- Automatic intrusion detection or manual panic button activated_x000D__x000D_- Alarming and access control application_x000D__x000D_- Pre/post event video clips and snap shots sequence capturing and recording _x000D__x000D_- Snap shots MMS_x000D__x000D_- Manual video recording_x000D__x000D_- Video streaming over cellular or LAN infrastructure_x000D__x000D_General_x000D__x000D_- Portable, compact, light, low-power, battery based, solar energy or vehicle battery charged, easy-to-install_x000D__x000D_- Easy-to-use, LEDs indication simple user interface without keypad or display_x000D__x000D_- SD Card local storage_x000D__x000D_- Operative day and night (IR illumination)_x000D__x000D_- Outdoor and automotive, extremely durable, working under harsh conditions_x000D__x000D_- Anti-tampering _x000D__x000D_- PC based enrollment, configuration set-up and time & attendance tools_x000D__x000D_The Consortium:_x000D__x000D_Maris Technologies Marketing Ltd., an Israeli design house and technology companies representative, focusing on home, business, automotive and professional biometric and digital video solutions.
