Contactless at the game

Issue 5 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

IDEMIA and Japan Aerospace Corporation (JAC) partnered to demonstrate a proof of concept with MorphoWave Compact, an access control biometric device.

A first in Japan, the biometric access technology was successfully tested at Level5 stadium in Fukuoka during the final match of the J2 League between Avispa Fukuoka and Kagoshima United Football Club at the end of 2019.

The MorphoWave Compact enables four fingerprints to be read in less than one second by a wave of the hand across the device. This biometric access solution enabled the stadium to combine speed and convenience with a high level of security within its high-traffic environment.

Two use cases were tested during the game:

1. Ticketless and hands-free admission: pre-registered customers were able to enter the stadium by biometric authentication without a physical ticket.

2. Verifying the identity of the customer by a wave of the hand on the biometric terminal at the food and beverage pickup counter.

“Our goal is to enable frictionless access everywhere without compromising security. IDEMIA has developed the MorphoWave Compact, a touchless fingerprint device that enables this, by combining a high level of biometric security with a unique user experience, convenience and speed, which is what environments like a stadium need,” said Nobuyoshi Nezu, managing director and vice president of sales for IDEMIA Japan.
