Technology and Its Reach

Today, technology has pushed the boundaries of imagination, the power to identify a person by just putting your finger on a device, or for photography, has allowed the development of various applications to ensure that the person is who claims to be. The technologies that identify individuals are grouped into the concept of biometrics, but what is biometrics? Then consider a definition that explanation: “Biometrics includes all the technological solutions of identifying individuals based on the unique properties, immovable and nontransferable for each person. The fingerprints, retina, iris, facial patterns of veins of the hand or the geometry of the palm, are examples of physical characteristics (static), while the examples of behavioral characteristics include signature, and click step (dynamic). The voice is considered a mixture of physical and behavioral characteristics, but all biometric traits share physical and behavioral aspects. “The great advantage of biometrics is that enables secure authentication, unlike the use of passwords or cards, as these can be stolen or used by people who do not correspond to individual that it identifies. We could say that human beings have ID cards integrated easily accessible: for example fingerprints, which are virtually unique designs.

A failure to transfer is added comfort for the user, who has not to carry identification or memorize anything. Each of these techniques should be applied, depending on the environment, to ensure their effectiveness. This time we will analyze which technique applied to the rural sector for a presence control on flower and agro-export companies. The rural sector Many employers are concerned about the control of their personal assistance, especially in areas where production of inputs such as flowers, broccoli, peppers, etc., depends on the timeliness of staff. (Not to be confused with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts!). Apply biometrics in this sector will depend on factors such as: cost of the solution, ease in handling the device, measuring effectiveness and speed of care. Therefore, using the hand geometry, fingerprint and facial recognition lately have been the most widely used.

The rural sector is perhaps the biggest problem environment to implement using biometric fingerprint. Because the tasks that each person plays in their daily tasks: flower business, agro-export, agriculture in general. This problem is resolved by using standards and methodologies which help the smooth functioning of the system itself. The hand geometry requires a password for verification, this may cause a problem because when people register their attendance by typing your password immediately and place the hand. The face recognition need not only the individual key puts your face in front of the camera and record their attendance. There face problems of location and brightness, but are resolved using appropriate mechanisms. In terms of cost, is higher than the trace and the palm of the hand, but in terms of speed of registration, especially for people with hard fingers, is the best option. The use of other mechanisms, such as reading the iris, retina, like the face does not need keys, however the installation of this equipment is expensive in relation to the fingerprint, hand and face. As conclusion the road, hands or face are effective measures that meet the expectations of ensuring the identification of the individual, but these depend on economic factors, speed of attention, and ease of management for optimum results in schedule control.
