Algorithm upgrades, automation key trends in fingerprint access control

Systems supporting more than one platform are popular. Makers are also adopting intelligent technology.


  • Fingerprint algorithm, sensor upgrades: Suppliers adopt the latest algorithms and sensors to improve print collection quality and prevent acceptance of fake ones. Popular solutions include Lumidigm’s multispectral and FPC’s capacitive sensors. Both boost the read and capture of fingerprint subsurfaces and details. Companies also aim to enhance identification of wet, very dry and scarred fingers.
  • Automation & intelligent technology: Makers integrate electric map, group management, database and intelligent attendance supervision to increase product functionality. Several include remote and online administration capability.
  • Combined verification stays mainstream: Models based on multiple technologies, especially RFID and password encryption, will continue to lead supply in the next two years because of their higher flexibility and security. Companies are improving designs to accommodate more solutions such as EM and Mifare in the RFID module.
  • User-friendly designs: The trend is for lighter keyboards, and larger touchscreens and status indicators.
