Intellicheck Mobilisa has been granted a patent for a document comparison system.
The US Patent No 7,860,318 is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of patents, which include one UK, eight US, and two Canadian patents as well as additional US and international patent applications pending.
The technology described in the patent relates to a system and method for comparing information contained in at least two documents. For example, a name contained on an individual driver’s license is automatically compared with a name contained on the individual’s airline boarding pass.
The company’s proprietary technology is used in its mobile devices that are capable of reading barcodes, magnetic stripes, RFID and OCR codes printed on ID cards.
The company says its Defense ID product, access control system, and ruggedised mobile ID reader has been recommended for testing at airports by New York Senator Chuck Schumer to prevent known terrorists on watch lists from boarding aircraft.
