Princeton Identity announced that Alabama’s Auburn University has updated and expanded the biometric identity system it uses to secure areas within its athletic facilities. Princeton Identity’s new IDS software and Access200 iris readers allow student-athletes, coaches and other affiliated team members enrolled in the system to unlock the doors to team locker rooms by glancing at small reader panels mounted outside each entrance.
Princeton Identity announced the deployment of its Biometric Conex, designed to assist customers with quick and accurate personnel authentication for campuses and facilities. The Conex is a 20-foot long standard shipping container outfitted with on-the-move facial, iris and fingerprint biometric capture technology, which can be operational in less than 24 hours. The first two containers will be shipped in October to government facilities.
Princeton Identity announced three new patents related to innovations in iris recognition technology that the company was awarded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The new patents represent the application of Princeton Identity’s unique approach to iris authentication in three very important market areas: access, marketing, and financial transactions. Using the techniques described in these patents, Princeton Identity advances the application of iris identification and personnel authentication much more broadly than physical security and represents the anticipated adoption of these technologies in the broader marketplace.
Princeton Identity has recently implemented an iris recognition system at Brevillier Village, a long term care and independent residential/retirement facility in Erie, Pennsylvania, that will make access control procedures easier and more convenient for both residents and staff. According to Jean LaFuria, Vice President of Residential Services, Brevillier Village, there were problems on-site when residents had difficulty using the access control keypads to move about the facility. A variety of options were investigated, including larger keypads to increase visibility, but none were an ideal solution.
