XceedID and Cogent Systems offer SmartGateX

The SmartGateX from XceedID is a fingerprint reader for smartcard applications. The system features a one to one biometric template authentication. When a card is presented to the reader, a finger is also placed on the reader’s fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint template is authenticated at the reader after the reader compares the live fingerprint with data from the card. Under the agreement, XceedID will incorporate its RFID technology into the Cogent SmartGate fingerprint reader.
