Biometric authentication technology is progressing from single-modal to multi-modal authentications that are capable of increasing the certainty of biometric authentications. The biological features that coexist in the same area of the human body may be perceived as a means of multi-modal authentication. Biometric authentication using blood vessel patterns or fingerprints are seen as promising technologies for the biometric authentication domain of the future. This is because the scanning of these body areas is a relatively simple process that is easily done compared to the multi-modal authentication of other body features. Source

Information displayed on the flight information system (FIS) is very important for airport users for acquiring flight information or details of the available airport facilities. In order to construct FIS at the International Flight Passenger Terminal of Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport), we employed the UCD (user-centered design) concept in order to achieve a human-friendly "Universal Design.

As discussed in the feature pages of this special issue, NEC is developing products for matching fingerprints, palm-prints and face matching. In addition, NEC has since a few years ago also been conducting R&D for a "DNA analysis system that is capable of field applications." When this system is used together with existing fingerprint, palmprint and face matching systems, a composite matching system is created that contributes significantly to the realization of a safe and secure society.

NEC has long been carrying out R&D improving the accuracy of automated fingerprint/palmprint matching technology. This paper introduces the technology for eliminating noise information from an image in which unnecessary fingerprints or patterns are superimposed as noise disturbance, which often causes a problem with latent prints collected at crime scenes. The development of this technology is expected to enable high-accuracy latent print matching operations while reducing the human work input. Source
