The first Iranian biometric fingerprint recognition within a POS system has been designed and developed in Khomeyni Shahr Islamic Azad University for the first time in the country.

According to an ISCA report, Mahdi Marani, M.S. student of Mechatronics engineering at Khomeyni Shahr IAU, used biometric fingerprint recognition within a POS system to make a biometric fingerprint scanner that offers accurate identification.

Biometric technology can strengthen security of a POS system by deploying a superior authentication method. A fingerprint scanner, being the most cost effective, secure and easy to install biometric authentication method, can add an extra layer of security to a POS system.

Current POS machines have been produced abroad and imported into the country at a great price, on the other hand, using the current devices requires bank cards. Fingerprint authentication with proper surveillance can encounter cases of employee thefts. It also eliminates buddy punching and increases payroll efficiency. Fingerprint authentication for logging into a POS system can deter any malicious attempts to steal information or abusing the system.

All the areas of a POS system, where password authentication is a requirement, can be replaced with fingerprint authentication. It provides superior security as compared to passwords, which can be shared, forgotten and even stolen. The project advisor, Ata Jahangir Moshayedi explained that the machine can be domestically produced with fewer pieces and less expenses.
