Members’ biometrics solutions and concepts for COVID-19

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak we asked our supplier members to offer solutions and concepts in a time of a pandemic to help build a resilient, international response. The submissions include, but go beyond, how biometric technology can help reduce virus spread in offices, hospitals, airports, and secure locations which rely on fingerprint readers, card access or manual processes and address questions about contactless products and hygiene.

Nineteen member organisations submitted papers outlining solutions from secure election e-voting, user verification in healthcare to contactless payments and remote onboarding. The document covers evaluating air traveller temperatures, retrofitting fingerprint readers with disinfecting technology and the implications of masks and gloves.

The Biometrics Institute does not endorse any of the submissions in the report but we are sharing them to help generate discussion at this challenging time.

We have also released an overview of contactless finger scanners based on a short supplier members survey. Read in the members-only Information Hub now.
