What are the Biometrics Applications?

With the development of the information age, people have higher and higher requirements for the protection of their belongings. Biometric identification technology, as a new and rapidly developing technology, plays an increasingly prominent role in protecting people’s information security. With the different research progress of information matching and extraction algorithms, the development of various types of identification technology is also different. To provide effective protection for people’s information security, biometric identification technology is applied in which industries? 

Biometric identification is mainly a technology for identity authentication through human biometric features. Human biological features are usually unique, can be measured or automatically identified and verified, and can be inherited or remain unchanged throughout life, so biometric authentication technology has great advantages over traditional authentication technology. Biometric identification systems sample biometric features, extract their unique characteristics and convert them into a digital code, and the digital code further forms a feature template. Due to the unique and irreproducible characteristics of the human body, this biometric key cannot be copied, stolen, or forgotten, and the identification uses biometric identification technology, which is safe, reliable, and accurate.

1. Time Attendance market

The time Attendance market is the most traditional and most widely used market of biometric identification technology, and also one of the main application fields of biometric identification technology at present. The traditional time attendance market is almost dominated by fingerprint identification technology, however, with the development of other biometric identification technologies, face recognition is gradually integrated into the attendance market with its non-contact and long-distance advantage, and vein identification is gradually integrated into the attendance market with its non-contact advantage, according to According to the statistics, the capacity of biometric recognition in time attendance market has reached nearly one billion RMB per year.

2. Door lock market

Door lock is the first application of biometric technology into the mass consumer market, in recent years, the intelligent door lock using biometric technology has begun to slowly replace the traditional lock, statistics show that more than 80% of urban users in China need to install intelligent door lock, so the overall market size of intelligent door lock is more than 300 billion yuan, intelligent door lock products are mainly based on fingerprint recognition and face recognition many safes also use biometric Identification locks.

3. Smart payment

The consumer product market is mainly represented by mobile devices such as cell phones. In the past two years, major cell phone companies have released new phones with biometric products and applications, and it seems that phones without fingerprint recognition or iris recognition technology cannot be marketed, and their annual shipments have reached tens of millions.

The rapid popularity of smartphones has greatly promoted the explosion of the biometric industry. In addition, face recognition payment and fingerprint recognition payment, represented by Alipay, are also huge application areas of biometric technology.

4. Intelligent security

Biometrics is a popular technology in the security industry, and the industry continues to heat up, especially in the field of intelligent monitoring. At present, the application market represented by face recognition and human behavior recognition is getting bigger and bigger, and many security enterprises have invested a lot of human and material resources in the field of biometrics, and some enterprises have achieved many results.

Access Control:

1. Physical Access Control: Biometrics are used to secure entry to buildings, rooms, or restricted areas.

2. Logical Access Control: Biometrics help authenticate individuals for access to computer systems, networks, and sensitive data.

Identification and Verification:

1. Law Enforcement: Criminal identification and verification through fingerprint, facial recognition, and iris scanning.

2. Border Control: Biometrics are used at border crossings for identity verification and tracking.
