Iris ID Radio
New biometrics technology increases safety and allow for quicker Canada—U.S. crossings. Iris ID in collaboration with IBM (NYSE:IBM) provides iris recognition technology to the Canada Border Services Agency’s NEXUS program.
The biometric technology will improve security and expedite border clearance processes between Canada and the U.S. Enrolled travelers can now clear customs by simply looking into a camera that uses the eye’s iris as proof of identity. Members benefit from expedited security screening lines in preclearance areas at dedicated immigration lanes at more than 100 participating U.S. airports.
At Georgia Southern University students pay for their meal in the two dining commons using a iris-based authentication system. The commons’ iris-based ID authentication system became so popular with students the university recently added an Iris reader to access the campus’ recreation center. Since the first Iris ID reader was installed in August 2013, the systems has been used more than 3 million times.
The Iris recognition technology eliminated the use of cards and became popular because of the speed and accuracy.
