Financial institutions want to use automation to handle transactions as quickly as possible, but they're also keenly interested in making sure only authorized users complete those transactions. Diebold Inc. is addressing these requirements with identiCenter™, which employs biometrics to guarantee the consumer's identity. identiCenter™ uses multispectral imaging fingerprint sensors from Lumidigm Inc. to prevent identity theft, which affects 10 million Americans at a total cost impact of $50 billion annually. The system can be used in drive-up systems or in kiosks that let consumers check in when entering a branch, selecting transaction options before reaching tellers. U.S. Biometrics Corp. provides the system that includes the fingerprint sensor.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
