Intellicheck Mobilisa identity solutions and wireless security systems obtained a U.S. patent for a system that allows users to compare information contained on two or more forms of ID cards. As Intellicheck Mobilisa’s 19th U.S. or foreign patent issued, it further strengthens the Company’s intellectual property. The system’s components include a document reader that can identify various data fields from a driver’s license, passport, credit card, benefit card, military ID card, government-issued ID card or bank card. Specifically, the reader can identify the bearer’s first name, last name, middle initial or name, date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, address, state of issuance of document, and date of issuance of the document. The two ID cards are intelligently compared field by field and the system provides a match/no match result or can provide an overall score using intelligent matching algorithms, that compare closeness to match and importance of field.
Intellicheck Mobilisa Obtains U.S. Patent for Enhanced ID Check Technology That Verifies Age and Displays Sample ID for Reference
Intellicheck Mobilisa wireless security systems obtained a U.S. patent for a technology that reads the information encoded on an ID card, authenticates and displays the bearer’s birthdate, and also displays a sample reference image of the ID just scanned to assist in the authentication process. This is Intellicheck Mobilisa’s 17th patent issued. The new patent builds on the Company’s existing ID Check technology that can instantly read, parse, compare and display encoded data from the barcodes on government-issued IDs. Intended to prevent the sale of age-restricted items to underage buyers, it provides the user with a readout that displays the age of the ID card bearer and verifies the card’s expiration date. A “license background graphic” shows the user a sample image of what the ID just scanned should look like. The technology currently includes sample images of driver licenses from every U.S. state and Canadian province.
