Fujitsu announced yesterday that it will use its biometric palm vein authentication technology in a public library in Naka city (Ibaraki prefecture, Japan). Fujitsu's contactless palm vein authentication will eliminate the use of library cards.
Naka city was established on January 21, 2005 with the founding principle of creating harmony among nature, the culture of the region, its people and cutting-edge science.
Features of Fujitsu's contactless palm vein authentication technology which were recognized and highly regarded by Naka city include
-High level of authentication accuracy due to the complexity of vein patterns of the palm.
-Difficulty in duplicating palm vein patterns given that the biometric information is internal to the body.
-The system is contactless and therefore hygienic for use in public areas.
