Precise Biometrics’ (STO:PREC) (http://www.precisebiometrics.com/) algorithm is now integrated in a smart phone as the result of the partnership with Fingerprint Cards (http://www.fingerprints.com/) (FPC).
The first smart phone that integrates a FPC sensor with Precise Biometrics Algorithm Precise BioMatch™ Mobile (http://www.precisebiometrics.com/Precise_BioMatch_Mobile) has been introduced on the Asian market. This release is the first of its kind since Precise Biometrics announced in August 2013 that they had entered in an agreement (http://feed.ne.cision.com/wpyfs/00/00/00/00/00/20/C6/67/release.html) with FPC, a manufacturer of fingerprint sensors.
”We are now seeing the result of our partnership with FPC and we are very pleased that our world-leading technology has been introduced into the smart phone market. It is exciting that it will be available in Asia, which is where the majority of mobile phone manufacturers expected to integrate fingerprint sensors are located,” says Patrik Lindeberg, COO at Precise Biometrics.
Precise BioMatch™ Mobile is based on the same algorithm that was top ranked in MINEX and Ongoing MINEX, tests conducted by the U.S. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
Precise BioMatch™ Mobile is optimized for smart phones and tablets with integrated fingerprint sensors. In addition to biometric performance, speed and footprint advantages it also provides efficient handling of rotated fingerprints. This is a crucial feature for the user experience in a mobile environment, and a major advantage over competitive products.
Due to confidentiality, Precise Biometrics cannot communicate the name of the mobile manufacturer.
