Introduction of the new palm recognition system by Amazon has been welcomed by customers. The recognition system, utilized in two of Amazon's stores in Seattle, has made it possible for shoppers to flash their palms before entering the secured areas. The new security device can also be broadly used by third parties such as retailers, offices and stadiums as well.
Dilip Kumar, the vice president of Physical Retail & Technology, said that the technology was developed to surpass the existing biometric equipment; it’s more private and secure. It doesn’t need any physical contact, something which is incredibly significant for customer’s safety, particularly these days with the spread of Covid-19.
Uniqueness of each palm makes it possible to check identification. However, the palm print is not saved on the system for security purposes.
The American multinational technology company has planned to apply Amazon One in other stores soon.
