Epoch-making Technology as Palm Vein Recognition

Biometrics technology used human biometrics such as fingerprints, face, iris, voices, etc. for identity authentication. Generally, biometrics technology used in access control management to enhance the identity management. Under the epoch-making changes, palm vein recognition technology (hereinafter referred to as “palm vein recognition”) becomes the most difficult biometrics technology to imitate nowadays, which gradually used in different industries around the world due to prospering in high demand. Let’s explore how palm vein recognition make a change in different industries.

Banking Industry

To replace the traditional seal and follow the paperless strategy, one of the well-known banks in Taiwan draw into the palm vein technology, use infrared sensor for identification from getting venous mapping. Due to the large recognition range of palm, the accuracy and security are much higher than fingerprint recognition, it takes few second for deposit, withdraw, transfer and check the balance, which providing customers with convenient, safe and fast banking services.

Medical Industry

A Japanese hospital combines palm vein technology and access control system, when doctor enters the operating theater, it needs to be the appointed doctor for entrance, even if the doctor is wearing gloves, the system can clearly identify the identity, which may reduce the risk of surgical errors effectively. Also, medical records can also be accessed through palm vein scanner. When the patient’s identity cannot be identified during the emergency situations, the patient can be identified through the palm vein that able to squeeze the time for rescue.

Convenience Stores

One of the largest South Korea’s  agent convenience stores introduced biometrics technology to check out. Consumers can directly complete the check-out once pre-registered and be the member of the payment platform after palm vein scanning. If is the age-restricted product, the system will notify the staff for on-site certification. Hence, carrying cash, credit cards and e-wallets are not necessary when hanging out.


A railway line in China has added the palm vein recognition, in order to identify passengers and avoid the excessive crowd. Through the 0.3-second rapid recognition technology, it contains high accuracy when distinguishing twins and it is not necessary to prepare real-name tickets, individual QR codes and valid identification documents when taking transportation. At the same time, this rapid identification technology able to avoid the excessive flow of people in the gate, capably to carry the needs of hundreds of millions users as good as bringing comfortable and safe riding experience to passengers.

Mobile Manufacturer

The famous mobile phone manufacturer in United States is applying a new patent for palm vein recognition, replacing the existing face unlock and touch unlocking. Besides of the application in smartphones and tablets, this manufacturer also considering to apply in smart watches, where the hand can be placed on screen to complete the authentication.

To conclude, the technical development of palmar vein recognition becomes common over the world, and the scope of application is gradually expanding, it keeps the high-level of accuracy, privacy, recognition rate and reliability. The hard-to-forge identification authentication becomes a unique feature when compared to other biometric systems.
