A secure wearable for payments, ticketing, access control and ID management

Project description

Novel, safe replacement for cards, passwords and keys

With near field communication or Bluetooth low energy technologies spearheading the rush to digitalise everyday objects like keys, tickets, credit cards and more, new solutions for management and application of them are paramount. There currently exist a number of options for secure authentication, but often they are prone to losses or attacks. The EU-funded BiowatchID project aims to revolutionise the field by introducing a wearable smart band. This smart wristband is capable of holding data for anything, from ID cards to car keys and credit cards, all of this while also utilising an innovative form of biometric authentication: the wristband continuously monitors the wearer’s wrist vein.
