Award-winning biometric ID Mouse upgraded

20 November 2002 Electronics Technology

Siemens Biometrics revealed a new biometric product, the Siemens ID Mouse Professional. This is a PC mouse that has convenient integrated fingertip sensors and allows users to clearly authenticate themselves not only to their PCs but also to web-based environments and applications. Deployment of the ID Mouse is simple, as it is a plug-and-play solution compatible with most operating systems.

The new ID Mouse Professional is based on its predecessor, the Siemens ID Mouse. First introduced in 1999, the ID Mouse is now the established top-selling standalone desktop biometric device on the European market according to the company. The ID Mouse was the first PC mouse to utilise a fingerprint sensor based on capacitive, rather than optical technology, and this significantly reduces the size of the mouse and increases resiliency.

The USB interface of the ID Mouse ensures full interoperability between the ID Mouse and a PC and as a result, all available PC interfaces can be accessed for further applications. The tool is available for both right and left-handed users. The high-speed controller allows communication to flow through the USB, whilst also processing the index finger signal and conducting communication with the fingerprint sensor.
