Fujitsu Frontech North America Unveils Biometric Customer-Authentication, RFID Garment-Tracking Solutions

Fujitsu Frontech North America demonstrated its PalmSecure biometrics and washable/wearable RFID solution at booth #3907 during the National Retail Federation's 2018 annual show, held this week at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Fujitsu demonstrated its recently announced F-Pro palm vein biometric sensor and STYLISTIC V535 Tablet with an embedded F-Pro sensor for authentication in a fixed or mobile retail environment. The F-Pro features a palm vein biometric sensor. The ruggedized tablet features an 8.3-inch projected capacitive touchscreen display, and is water- and dust-resistant, with more than five hours of runtime.

In addition, Fujitsu demonstrated its washable/wearable WT-A533L UHF RFID fashion tag. Tracking fashion garments, formalwear and accessories is critical to a successful garment rental enterprise. The 7-millimeter-wide fashion tag can be discreetly affixed to high-fashion articles to track their location and combat fraud. With RFID, the company reports, fashion rental providers can reduce workflow by scanning fashion items in bulk to prevent shipping errors, as well as tracking received items as soon as they come off a truck, without the need for manual sorting. The tag is designed to withstand normal washing, dry cleaning and ironing.

"Fujitsu is extremely excited about the release of the V535 with integrated F-Pro. We are currently working with strategic partners who will enable us to grow our PalmSecure suite of solutions," said Randy Fox, Fujitsu Frontech North America's VP of currency handling and identity product solutions, in a prepared statement. "Tracking fashion garments, formalwear, and accessories is critical to a successful garment rental enterprise. Fashion garment designers and manufacturers will benefit from its small, almost imperceptible design allowing them to provide positive identification of their high value items while reducing incidents of loss and return fraud."
