Mexico upgrades to multi biometric ID system

Mexico City, Mexico

Safran Identity & Security has been awarded a five-year contract by the National Electoral Institute of Mexico (INE) for its multi-biometric identification system and related services.

With this new contract, INE confirms is placing its trust in Safran to conform and update the Mexican national voter registry that enables fair and efficient elections.

As one of the world's largest systems of its kind, the multi-biometric identification system ensures each voter has a unique identity by detecting false or double-identity cases in real time. It uses both fingerprint and facial recognition to help ensure that each Mexican citizen is registered only once in the national voter rolls.

Safran has supported INE with its multi-biometric system since 2005. The latest contract comprises the modernisation of the system with the latest biometric technology and an upgrade from 2 to 10 fingerprint matching. The new system will be able to register 113 million fingerprint captures and portrait images. These will be matched against the largest database in the region. Safran's solution is designed to support up to 120,000 transactions per day.

"As an autonomous public entity responsible for organising federal elections, we need to ensure the trustworthiness of the process. For more than 10 years, Safran has proven it fulfills this demanding requirement. By choosing the world leader in biometric technology, INE is making sure it is well prepared for the future with state of the art technology," says René Miranda Jaimes, Executive Director of the Electoral Federal Registry at INE

Jessica Westerouen van Meeteren, EVP of Safran Identity & Security's Government Identity Solutions division added: "We are very proud to continue our longstanding relationship and our support for INE and to bring our in-depth experience to Mexico's biometric identification system. With proven experience for large-scale projects like this, as well as in India, Kenya, Colombia, Peru and Chili, we can make a direct contribution to enabling an accurate and smooth democratic national voting process."

Vivotek solution benefits enforcement system in Argentina

Until Vialseg developed a new system, the traffic light enforcement system in Argentina relied on devices based on physical inductive loops installed under the pavement and a physical connection to the traffic light controller. This traffic light enforcement system without a physical connection to the street and traffic lights created constant down time, and resulted in a lack of captured violations due to road maintenance or lost connection with the traffic light itself as two common examples.
