Bosch Building Technologies partners with IDEMIA to provide biometric access control solutions to its customers. Bosch is best known for its Building Integration System (BIS), which combines a number of different security functions under one software.
Older versions of BIS supported everything from fire alarms and CCTV to the public address system. The partnership with IDEMIA will add biometric access control terminals to the mix. The BIS is now specifically compatible with IDEMIA’s MorphoWave fingerprint scanner, and with its VisionPass facial recognition terminal.
As a result, IDEMIA will be able to seamlessly install both solutions in all offices, factories and commercial buildings that operate on the larger BIS platform. The MorphoWave is a non-contact scanner that matches four fingerprints when someone passes their hand through their device, while VisionPass comes with built-in 2D, 3D, and infrared cameras that can match up to 30 faces in one minute. .
Together, the two companies hope to capture a portion of a $ 1.4 billion biometric access control market by 2024. They argue that biometric access control is more efficient and reliable. than traditional security methodologies like ID cards, which can be copied. or stolen and therefore do not offer the same guarantees of identity as immutable biometrics that cannot be shared with another person. Contactless devices can also identify people wearing masks and are more hygienic in a post-COVID-19 environment.
“We are delighted to start this global partnership with Bosch,” said Yves Portalier, Executive Vice President of IDEMIA Biometric Devices and Automotive. “The combination of our biometric devices with the BIS platform will constitute a solid offer for companies looking for a high level of security and comfort of use. “
VisionPass was named best biometric solution at the SIA New Product Showcase Awards in July 2020, while IDEMIA installed MorphoWave in its own offices in Tokyo. Telefónica also began marketing MorphoWave to its own customers earlier this year.

Data rights groups warn of privacy breaches and risks to vulnerable communities after Abu Dhabi deploys scanners at border crossings, shopping malls and other public places that could detect COVID-19 in seconds.
Abu Dhabi’s health department says EDE scanners can confirm COVID-19 infection by measuring an individual’s electromagnetic wave emissions, which it says are altered when the coronavirus is present, according to a report. June 27 statement from the Abu Dhabi media office.
The new system has rights groups and even some locals are worried.
“I went to a mall, and instead of a temperature scan, the (security guard) seemed to take a photo on a cell phone,” said Firas, a consultant who has lived in Abu Dhabi for nine months. and asked to use a pseudonym.
He said the guard informed him that the phone’s camera was not only testing its electromagnetic emissions, but also performing a retinal scan, which the guard said could tell him if Firas was vaccinated or had been tested. Recent PCR.
Firas suspected that the scanner was linked to the digital identification system used by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to allow residents to access their health records, visa applications and other official processes.
“This is the compromise you make when you come here. We have signed an agreement with this system in exchange for safety and security,” he said.
A Media Office spokesperson told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that “scanners are not tied to any identification system and no one is identified when scanned,” adding that the system does not capture or store any personal data.
Authorities in the UAE have relied heavily on artificial intelligence for years, including facial recognition technology.
In 2018, Dubai Police launched a network of thousands of cameras – dubbed Oyoon, “eyes” in Arabic – to help them tackle crime in the emirate.
After the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, UAE police deployed smart helmets to scan temperatures of up to 200 passers-by per minute, while Dubai police pledged to post photos of anyone violating curfew restrictions without blurring their faces.
Matt Mahmoudi, technology researcher at Amnesty International, called this a “surveillance-service trade-off” often seen in smart cities.
“This particular type of facial recognition (the one deployed in Abu Dhabi) is of concern because mass surveillance technology risks violating people’s right to privacy,” he said over the phone.
The UAE is categorized as’ non-free ‘by US think-tank Freedom House, which said state internet surveillance was rampant, violated users’ right to privacy and did not appear to be regulated by “significant legal control”. “
This “opaque legal framework” could specifically lead to harassment of religious or sexual minorities in the largely conservative emirates, said Mohamad Najem, executive director of Lebanese digital rights group SMEX.
Khalid Ibrahim, executive director of the nonprofit Gulf Center for Human Rights, also feared that the technology could lead to increased surveillance of migrant workers in the United Arab Emirates, which the International Labor Organization says is home to the fifth largest migrant population in the world.
The deployment of Abu Dhabi’s new scanners “was not transparent,” Ibrahim said, demanding more details from the government on how the technology works, the role of facial recognition and whether security forces would have access to the results .
“These are all important questions that the decline in government transparency has not answered,” he said.
