Smartlinx Inc. has announced that it launched SmartVM an e-Governance application to be used in biometric systems that will leverage Fujitsu’s (News
) Palm Vein Authentication technology.
Fujitsu’s Vein Authentication technology is incorporated in the SmartVM application and will be used by Smartlinx for developing a pilot biometric based voting system for the Forest Department of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, India.
According to company officials, the SmartVM application will operate via a device called the PalmSecure which is capable of scanning the unique vein pattern inside a person’s palm.
This can be verified when the person places his/her palm on the device’s screen which then runs an automated verification test based on some parameters to confirm his/her identity.
If the patterns do not match an alert will be raised that the person is a fraud.
PalmSecure is made for heavy duty usage and for tough terrains and can perform well in extreme conditions.
Sanjay Srivastava, business head (PalmSecure) at Fujitsu India, said, “We are very glad and proud of the futuristic innovation of SmartVM. This has expanded the scope of solutions which use our PalmSecure technology and taken it to the next level. We are sure this would fill the gaps currently being experienced in the budding e-governance measures.”
“We can imagine the several possible solutions that SmartVM can deliver, withstanding any terrain or environmental conditions and still continue to perform. We are very happy to add SmartVM solution in the list of solutions prepared globally using our PalmSecure technology,” Srivastava said.
