Contactless fingerprint acquisition for travel

Deploying contactless fingerprint scanners to hygienically identify travelers at borders

MorphoWave and TravelKiosk IDEMIA

Touchless fingerprint acquisition at borders speeds up the capture process and mitigates hygiene concerns, resulting in greater efficiency—and a better and contactless travel experience.

Adapted to the border control environment, IDEMIA’s MorphoWave™ provides a unique, field-proven fingerprint solution for frictionless processing at air, land, and sea borders. It offers contactless, simultaneous four-fingerprint capture, and on-the-spot identity verification in one device. The only touchless biometric solution of its kind, MorphoWave™ scans high-quality fingerprint images and confirms the traveler’s identity in less than one second. All of this is done with a simple, hygienic wave of the hand.

Compatible with legacy contact fingerprint databases, it is suitable for various border crossing points where high throughput, security, and convenience are key. Typical applications include self-service kiosks, eGates, and manual counters—for indoor and outdoor use.
