Fujitsu PalmSecure Innovation Contest Collecting further scopes of application for the security system of tomorrow
One impressive example of Fujitsu’s high-quality products is the palm vein pattern authentication technology called Fujitsu PalmSecure™.Through infrared light the Fujitsu PalmSecure™ sensor detects the very complex vein pattern in the palm of the hand to safely guarantee personal information. Within their PalmSecure™ technology and its various application possibilities, Fujitsu has created a brand new way of authentication security.
Even though Biometric authentication technology is gaining attention, new fields of distribution of the PalmSecure™ technology are to be identified. As the technology is adaptable for many different security cases, Fujitsu wanted to find further scopes of application. This request led to an Open Innovation Goal. Within the PalmSecure™ Idea Contest new application areas for a match-on-device system and different use cases for the technology were quested. Additionally future possibilities of application of the PalmSecure™ as well as appearances of the sensor in different usage scenarios were searched.
The success of the initiative is reflected in more than 400 submitted ideas, as well as the international awareness of the initiative. In total visitors from 92 different nations were part of the community during seven weeks of competition. 380 members registered to participate at the competition and to share their ideas for new application areas, use cases and designs for the PalmSecure™ technology. Within the energized participation various use cases of the PalmSecure™ in fields of government, finance, enterprise, automotive, retail, energy, industry 4.0 and other areas could be collected. The highly motivated and vibrant community additionally wrote 925 comments and liked 445 ideas submitted by the participants.
