ALCATEL ONETOUCH and IriTech will unveil a tablet device with integrated iris recognition during the MWC 2014.
The tablet demonstrates how iris recognition could be used to authenticate applications such as device lock/unlock, application launch control and data encryption. The companies say that it takes just seconds to scan and authenticate the user's iris.
ALCATEL ONETOUCH and IriTech installed a small iris recognition camera module and IR LED, as well as IriTech's matching algorithm, into a tablet device. The concept demonstrates the potential for integrating iris biometrics into mobile devices for security purposes and ease-of-use. Future applications include second factor authentication for mobile financial transaction, OTP (one-time-password) generation and remote vehicle control.
