What is Multimodal Biometrics?


Multimodal biometrics refers to the integration or fusion of two or above biometrics technology.

Combing with data fusion technology, multimodal biometrics has access to make authentication and identification more accurate and safe.


Compared with single biometrics, multimodal biometrics can collect different biological characteristics (fingerprints, vein, face, iris, etc.) through collectors with independent or multiple acquisition methods. And then, it will recognize and verify individuals through analysis and judge the characteristic of multimodal biometrics.

Why Multimodal Biometrics Be the Trend?


During the epidemic, traditional fingerprint attendance devices have been forbidden so as to reduce the risk of contact infection. Face recognition effect greatly affected by mask sheltering, which indirectly promoted the development of biometrics upgrade.


Meanwhile, people realize that single biometrics cannot support increasingly complex and diverse identity authentication scenarios while multimodal biometrics can conduct more accurate identity authentication and centralized, unified system management as it can combine face, fingerprint, finger vein, iris, voice print and other biometrics.


In the post-epidemic era, multimodal biometric identification can be more valuable and provide flexible and appropriate identity authentication solutions based on different application needs and scenarios.


What is The Application of Multimodal Biometrics?


According to the technology application scenario, multimodal biometrics mainly focuses on the following aspects.


l  “Fingerprint+ Face+ OCR” applied by the public service industry, such as public security, border control, entry-exit, social security, and other institutions

l  “Fingerprint + Iris + Palm print” used in information security field include army, military enterprises, company with higher data privacy

l  “Face + Fingerprint + Iris” adopted by personalized AIOT application fields, including government agency, hotel, retail, office, community, and other industries
