The Community Center in Madison
has implemented a new method for checking in at the front
counter using biometrics. This system collects information
from your fingerprint to create a unique identity for each
member. Once a user is enrolled, they can be verified in less
than two seconds.
Enrollment takes less than two
minutes and will be available to everyone. The enrollment
process will start in March of 2005.
How Does it Work:
The system enrolls fingers and
associates them to member's records. It takes a series of
measurement and comes up with a unique identity for the
member's finger.* Though it does not store the finger print
image, it can accurately identify the user quickly. This
system will be used in place of the current swipe card system.
You will no longer need to remember your swipe card to access
the Community Centers Facilities.
* Privacy Notice: This
system does not, in any way, store an image of your
fingerprint. With the data collected, it is impossible
to recreate your fingerprint.
