Institute of electronics and computer science in collaboration with SIA “Infoserv-Riga” has started a project titled Palm data acquisition and processing system (PALMs) in January 1st 2014. The project is supported by European Regional Development Fund ERDF grant No.2013/0035/2DP/188.8.131.52.0/13/APIA/VIAA/015 and managed by Dr.Sc.Comp. Modris Greitāns.
The aim of the project is to develop innovative and competitive product. In the scope of the project is planned to develop the palm data acquisition and processing system which use biometric features The project corresponds to the Latvian priority research direction “Innovative materials and technologies”.
Duration of the project is from January 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.
The funding amount is 121805 LVL, including ERDF funding of 89724 LVL
The Institute of Electronics and Computer Science (IECS) has started a project titled Multimodal biometric technology for safe and easy person authentication (BiTe) in January 1, 2011. The project is supported by European Regional Development Fund ERDF grant No. “2010/0285/2DP/184.108.40.206.0/10/APIA/VIAA/098.” and managed by Dr.sc.comp. Modris Greitans.
The main goal of the project is to develop safe, comfortable and widely used person’s identification technology based on human palm and face image analysis as along with smart cards for biometric data to preventing card usage without its owner. Identity fraud is one of modern thefts, which gives the “thief” an opportunity of making a financial loss to victim. Stolen identity causes a total loss of 221 billion dollars each year. The banks confirmed that the implementation of such system would provide an opportunity to replace (or combine) signature or PIN based bank cards with owner’s biometric data. Comfortable, cheep and secure person identification technology can be implement in everyday application like – banking, trading places, object access and control (including vehicles) etc.
Project is managed by the Institute of Electronics and Computer Science and is in synergy with ESF 220.127.116.11 activity project “Smart sensor and embedded network system research and development centre”.
The project time frame is from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2013.
The funding amount is 291 924 LVL.
