Poland's BPS unveils biometric cash machine

In a European first, Polish bank BPS has unveiled an ATM that uses Hitachi's finger vein authentication technology to identify customers.

The Wincor Nixdorf cash machine lets BPS customers in Warsaw use their fingers, rather than bank cards, to identify themselves and withdraw money.

According to AFP, BPS plans to roll out three or four of the ATMs in Warsaw by the end of the year with a further 200 then installed throughout the rest of Poland.

Hitachi's system requires customers to place their fingertip on a sensor, detecting veins as a 3D pattern that is unique to each person. It was introduced in Japan in 2006 and is used by, among others, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation for ATM access in am/pm convenience stores.

Biometric ATMs has gained less traction in Europe and the US, although earlier this week it emerged that American bank First United is set to pilot fingerprint authentication technology from Hawk Systems at six machines in the New York met area.
