A paperless biometrics platform based on open source technology and open standards, going by the name of OpenGate, has been developed collaboratively by uqudo and iLabs Technologies with integrated technology from Tech5 to bring COVID-19 contact tracing and immunity digital certificates to decentralized travel.
THE POTENTIAL OF TOUCHLESS BIOMETRIC TECHNOLOGIES AND SOLUTIONS FOR COVID-19 MANAGEMENT AND THE POST-PANDEMIC ERA
The global impact of the dangerous new coronavirus, COVID-19, has led to the rapid development of new technologies and solutions that allow for the collection of data to monitor the spread of the virus. Several health and government authorities have already begun implementing biometric-based.
Over the last decade, virtually all industry and service sectors have transitioned to a digitalized mode for the delivery of services and the access of information. Furthermore, many governments have turned to digital ID to drive their National ID projects, resulting in greater security as well as economic.
Efficient and effective identity management continues to be one of the most important requirements for the growth and development of modern societies, particularly today at a time of unprecedented increases in population and the need for greater interaction between groups.
