Umm Al-Qura University in Mecca, Saudi Arabia has chosen touchless fingerprint terminals developed by Switzerland-based Touchless Biometric Systems for a new security and attendance system.The 120-unit system is being used to secure colleges that occupy over 60 buildings, with more than 3,000 staff on-site.”TBS has made employee attendance headaches a history in our university,” said Dr. Fahd Al-Zahrani, Dean of the IT department at the university.The solution had to securely and intelligently manage a large number of users, to display Arabic language, and be easy to use, said TBS in a statement.TBS says it also faced the challenge of validating “critical fingerprints”. This describes fingerprint issues caused by thin skin resulting from diabetes, high pigment skin, and fingers decorated with henna.TBS said its Touchless Technology (TBS 3D) was able to achieve this by using a non-intrusive capturing process that delivers “far superior” identification results.
