From the beginning of biometric recognition system, fingerprint is the most reliable recognition system around the world. Many law enforcement agencies, banks, institutions and private organizations choose fingerprint biometric over other modalities. But, with the advent of biometric technology, more technologies are breathing down fingerprint recognition’s neck.
The most prominent recognition technologies are facial recognition, iris scanning, and voice biometrics to name a few. We are hearing a lot of news about face recognition vs fingerprint these days. So, we will try to break down the differences between face recognition and fingerprint biometrics today.
Fingerprint recognition is a highly trustable system in terms of accurate measurement. But, it also has some drawbacks and fails to analyze perfectly in several cases like rough environment. Dirt, grease to employee’s fingers are very common in this type of situation. Additionally, if any damages occur to a person’s finger, he will be definitely in deep water. Face recognition system works differently. It analyzes from multiple aspects including the placement of eye, cheeks, ears etc. that brings the lowest error rate in this modality.
Biometric technology, more specifically fingerprint recognition is undoubtedly a very effective solution to fight against the intruders. But, it is also true that the price of this solution is expensive and unaffordable for many small companies. Apart from the software, a company also has to buy high-quality fingerprint device separately. Blackstone eIT Face recognition technology doesn’t require high-end cameras.
