03 March 2006  |  6910 views  |  0 Biometric finger scan

Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC) is deploying Hitachi's finger vein authentication technology as the user ID system for ATMs located in am/pm convenience stores throughout Japan.

The vein authentication system requires customers to place their fingertip on a sensor which will then detect veins as a 3D pattern unique to each person.

According to local press reports, the security system will be rolled out across 1100 terminals in am/pm locations in Japan. Hitachi-Omron Terminal Solutions, a joint venture established in 2004 between between Hitachi, Mechatronics Systems Division and Omron Corporation will supply the terminals.

Sumitomo has reportedly already deployed Hitachi's vein authentication system across ATMs located in its branches.
