  • 1. VP-II X Hand Vascular Pattern Recognition (HVPR) Presented by Ayal Vogel Executive Vice President of Global Sales Identica Holdings Corporation July 30, 2009
  • 2. VP-II X Specification Overview VP-II X is a biometric scanner which verifies users individually unique vascular patterns extracted from the hypoderm below the surface of the skin of the back of the hand using an infra-red based sensor device. | Utilized Technology: HVPR (Hand Vascular Pattern Recognition) | Usability: 99.98% | Accuracy: FAR: 0.0001%, FRR: 0.1% | Verification Speed: 0.4 sec / person
    • | Hardware Overview
      • Dual CPUs (400MHz DSP, 180Mhz ARM Processor)
      • 65K Color 2.8” TFT LCD / 16 Keys / IR Sensor / Speaker
      • TCP/IP Ethernet, Wiegand In/Out, Serial ports, Digital I/O, USB 2.0

    General Factors in Choosing biometrics
    • Useable for whole population (user group)
      • It is known that more than 5% of the adult population cannot use fingerprint systems. This is mainly due to the absence or weakness of their fingerprints. About 2% of people do not have proper fingerprints, and many people who use their hands intensively for work generate a very weak signal to fingerprint scanners. The VP-II provides 99.98% usability, which means almost all of the general population can use the system without any problems.
    • Does not leave a trace of residual features after use
      • If a biometric system leaves residual features after physical contact, the features would be easily duplicated and/or forged. It is known that fraudulent fingerprints can be easily made by the residual fingerprint on the surface of the sensor.
    • Be able to reject non-human features from enrollment
      • Non-human features should not be allowed to be enrolled by a biometric, for it to be considered a true biometric system. VP-II recognizes non-human features at enrollment.
    Biometric systems should be: Biometrics Systems
