Can you outline the breadth and scope of your technology development and what improvement it brings to biometrics?
“Our technology incorporates novel innovation in sensing technology, algorithm development and firmware design.
“A person’s ECG signal has some very interesting attributes and unique features that distinguish one person from the next, making our authentication approach significantly more secure than passwords and PINs.
“ECG is an internal biometric that, unlike fingerprints, does not leave any latent samples and, unlike facial or eye biometrics, is much harder to attain without the user’s permission. This means it is much more difficult to spoof or harvest.
“Our patented technology has enormous potential and could be used in almost any industry where security is critical. Think of physical access control to restricted areas like government buildings and intensive care wards, biometric authentication for vehicles and secure financial transactions.
“We are currently running a number of interesting pilots, including a biometric smart card for controlled access in a major UK airport technology integrator and a similar trial with one of the UK’s leading construction businesses.”
What are the main points of your company’s technology development strategy?
“Our primary strategy is not to develop a specific product but to deliver a host of ECG technical solutions that allow our technology to be easily integrated into other products and systems.
“Given the many use cases where the technology could be deployed, we believe this is the best strategy to enable us to simultaneously work in many industries and with other technologies.
