Periodic Reporting for period 1 - UltraFiBi (Next-generation Strong Ultrasonic Fingerprint Biometrics)
Reporting period: 2017-10-01 to 2018-03-31
The main objective of UltraFiBi was to conceive a comprehensive business plan for MODULEUS’ entry to markets initially in Europe, through two main activities: mapping of the market and technology assessment, based on the strong expertise by MODULEUS in the overall value chain of advanced ultrasound systems development, i.e. application, platforms, software, electronic boards, and components.
Regarding IPR strategy and freedom-to-operate, MODULEUS had already filed its first 2 patents prior to the project beginning. The anteriority search report of one of the two patents was issued during the project and has confirmed its potential strength, leading us to launch a PCT process. We’ve also been working on two new patent applications, related to inner finger biometric trait imaging and dedicated biometric algorithms, thus reinforcing our IP position.
