ZKTeco­ introduced the touchless palm recognition technology which was a breakthrough of touchless biometrics recognition, it was the fi­rst and the only recognition available. However, the previous technology was constrained by the angle tolerance and short recognition distance resulted in an imperfect user experience solution. After 5 years of R&D and the technological bloom of computer vision, in 2019 ZKTeco  launched the next generation 3-in-1 Palm Recognition Technology.


The newest generation of palm recognition technology is fully upgraded in all aspects in terms of recognition method, which combines palm, palm print and palm vein recognition as one, with the help of the delegated computer vision biometrics CPU, the whole recognition process can be fi­nished in 0.35 second. Moreover, the computer vision technology has greatly enhanced the recognition performance, the angle tolerance is improved to as wide as +/- 60 degrees (roll axis), and the recognition distance can be up to 0.5 meters upon the palm-size. Most importantly, the anti-spoof ability has reached a new height of the industry, as the testing result has shown, all the testing subjects including, fake HD photos, fake HD video, and fake palm model cannot stand any chance to crack the system.


Recognition Process

Palm Recognition

When the palm close to the camera, the camera will fi­rst function the palm recognition process to identify whether this is a palm, if the nearing object is not a palm, it will stop the further recognition process. If the nearing object is a palm, it will pass it to the next step


Palm Print Recognition

Meanwhile, the infrared camera will use the infrared light to observe the palm vein, which is normally unobservable by the human eye, same as the palm print, it will recognize the feature point of the palm vein and then cross-check with the database for its availability


Technological Features

Anti-spoofi­ng Technology With the help of Computer Vision technology, the anti-spoof ability has been greatly enhanced. The 3-in-1 combination of palm, palm print and palm vein sets an extremely high bar for spoo­fing attacks to pass through. All attacks are guarded throughout three layers as follows:


1st Layer - Palm Recognition

The latest algorithm contains the palm recognition function, it can identify whether the object is in proper “palm” shape, all the objects that are not in a proper “palm” shape will be identi­fied as non-palm object and will be refused to process to the further recognition process.

 

2nd Layer - Palm Print Recognition 

After the 1st layer recognition, the palm shape object will go for the second recognition process, the infrared camera will recognize the palm print, as palm print is one of the unique features points of human being, and is formed by hundreds of thousands of lines, accurate replication of palm print is extremely hard to be done, and 90% of the fake palm will be identifi­ed and rejected in this stage.


3rd Layer - Palm Vein Recognition 

In this stage, the infrared camera will be activated. Under normal sunlight, palm vein cannot be imaged, but under infrared light (wavelength 700 – 900mm), the palm vein will become visible as the deoxygenated hemoglobin in the blood exhibits stronger absorption characteristics than moisture in other tissues and tissues under infrared light. Using a near-infrared light source to illuminate the palm, the venous blood in the shallow layer of the palm absorbs most of the light, while the body tissue such as the skin absorbs light less and Reflects the light back. Through the imaging of the image sensor, the venous blood vessels and other tissues are imaged with a strong difference in brightness, so that the structural distribution of the vein can be clearly distinguished. Hence the complication process to get a clear image of the palm vein, and the vein image is extremely complex which is involved with millions of vessels and some of the vessels are as tiny as a hair, it is almost impossible to replicate a fake palm vein model to pass the recognition process


Wide Angle Tolerance

Ultra-long Recognition Distance With the help of the HD image sensor and HD and infrared camera technology bloom in recent years, getting a clear palm, palm print and palm vein image in the range of 10 – 60 cm is absolutely simple. With ZKTeco’s biometrics processing unit, the whole recognition process can be ­finished in less than 0.35s, which is absolutely one of the ­nest in the industry
