Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and statistically analysing biological data. In the time management industry, biometrics usually refers to technologies for measuring and analysing human body characteristics such as eye retinas and irises, facial patterns, fingerprints, and hand measurements.

Eyes - Iris & Retina Recognition

The use of the features found in the iris to identify an individual. The use of patterns of veins in the back of the eye to accomplish recognition.

Face Recognition

The analysis of facial features or patterns for the authentication or recognition of an individual’s identity.
