In 2021, traditional identity fraud losses—those involving any use of a consumer’s personal information to achieve illicit financial gain—amounted to $24 billion (USD) and ensnared 15 million U.S. consumers according to Javelin Research. 1

“With runaway fraud and its exponential growth in the USA, it is important that all touch points in the payment eco-system harden their security defenses,” said SmartMetric’s President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

Credit and debit cards that use outdated technology as highly vulnerable four (4) digit PIN’s are an obvious weak point of security for payment cards. “Adding biometric fingerprint identification for the card to work is layering a highly strong authentication and security to the credit and debit card using the power of biometrics,” said Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric biometric credit and debit card solution uses the SmartMetric developed miniature fingerprint scanner and reader that sits inside the credit and debit card. This is used to instantly identify the card user and in turn activate the card for use in a transaction.

Using advanced battery and a SmartMetric developed power management system, the SmartMetric card is the only biometric credit/debit card that is able to be used at ATM’s and Gas pumps that use readers that “swallow” the card for a transaction. Inferior biometric payments cards rely on drawing the power from the card reader in order for the card to do a fingerprint match, but of course this prohibits the card from being used in contact card readers that take in the card, not allowing the card holder to hold the card with their finger on the card’s sensor.

The SmartMetric biometric credit card solution is without a doubt without peer in the world of biometric cards. Years of research and development with a clear objective of creating a best in class biometric card solution with a user centric focus, has given SmartMetric an unbelievable new credit card category product.

“Bringing a brand-new type of credit card into existence and that meets the approval and licensing requirements of the credit card industry is no small feat. However, we are excited with the incredible prospects for the company as we move forward with our amazing next generation credit card with its built-in biometric fingerprint security,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric believes it has created the most advanced biometric credit card solution in the world. “While others may try to imitate, none have come even close to achieving the advances, such as our card to be used in all types of credit card readers, in all card usage situations,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo 2 reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SmartMetric in Last Stage of Manufacture of Its Latest Biometric Fingerprin…

[ad_1]

NEW YORK, December 02, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): Having been confronted with delays and obstacles in component delivery along with physical issues with supply chain and component manufacturing, SmartMetric is pleased to advise that it is now nearing the completion of the manufacturing of its latest version of its biometric credit card with the advanced nano fingerprint reader built inside the card.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20221202005448/en/

The main advanced features of the SmartMetric biometric card are:

  1. Internal rechargeable hybrid solid state battery that allows the card to be used for fingerprint recognition prior to the card being inserted into a reader. This state-of-the-art battery has been tailor made to the specifications of SmartMetric. It is non-volatile and can withstand being cut or punctured. The physical size is less than half of the prior battery that was being used by SmartMetric. Having a power source inside the card allows the card to be used for a fingerprint scan at such places as ATMs that “swallow” the card and at restaurants where the attendant takes the card from the table to process at the counter.

  2. Hardware solution that identifies a live fingerprint and differentiates between a real fingerprint as apposed to a fake fingerprint made of, say, silicon. This feature is unique to the SmartMetric biometric card and provides for a solid and robust live fingerprint detection. Others have said they can achieve live fingerprint detection through software. Our testing in R&D in our engineering center in Tel Aviv, Israel has shown us that software-based live detection does not work. SmartMetric has spent a great deal of time and effort in designing and developing its live fingerprint hardware-based detection system.

  3. Refined our circuit board used to mount our electronic components to achieve greater thinness and smaller size. Having an electronics circuit board with mounted electronic components that fits inside a credit card ISO thickness has always been a challenge. It has taken SmartMetric years of R&D to perfect is miniaturization to less than 1/3 the thickness of a credit card. This is an incredible achievement in the field of electronics. Especially when you consider the SmartMetric circuit board has an ARM Cortex processor, flash memory and a complex power management system. It is akin to having a smartphone ciruit board one third the thickness of a credit card. This achievement in miniaturization has been achieved by SmartMetric engineers.

  4. SmartMetric operating system that is used to the control the card’s internal Cortex processor used to perform the fingerprint scan of the card user. This operating system also controls the card’s internal power management system that allows the card to receive a rapid recharge when inserted into a “contact” credit card reader. The SmartMetric OS also allows the card to rapidly harvest RFID/NFC energy from contactless card readers when the card is used for a contactless payment. This energy harvesting only provides enough power for a single fingerprint scan so it is limited in its use and application.

  5. Additional memory attached to the SmartMetric Cortex processor, allowing the card to be used in the future for multi usages beyond just payments. At the moment the company has successfully attached 1GB of memory, however we are able to add many times this inside our card.

  6. In home self-enrollment of the card user’s fingerprint. Since the SmartMetric biometric card solution does not use the cards EMV secure element but rather an independent secure processor for storing and matching the users fingerprint, the new card can be sent via mail to the card user and they are able to enroll their fingerprint much in the same way a person enrolls their fingerprint on a smartphone. This is absolutely critical in markets such as the USA where nearly 80% of new credit cards are sent out via the mail. Imitators of the SmartMetric card use the EMV secure element for storing the card holder’s fingerprint. This of itself creates system design inefficiencies but most importantly since the enrollment of the fingerprint is into the EMV payment system secure element chip, it requires the card holder to go into a bank branch and use a special enrollment device to have their fingerprint stored in the EMV chip. Of course, SmartMetric realized a number of years ago that this would not work in real life and would in fact inhibit the adoption of biometric credit cards. Consequently, SmartMetric spent a huge effort in providing a solution that operates like a smartphone. Simple frictionless self-fingerprint enrollment is an imperative for the design and development of the SmartMetric biometric credit card.

  7. Perfected the method of using standard credit card lamination equipment for the final card lamination and printing process. SmartMetric is able to provide the card as a “pre-lam” product to existing credit card laminators and card personalization providers that provide card services to card issuing Banks.

The SmartMetric biometric credit card solution is without a doubt without peers in the world of biometric cards. Years of research and development with a clear objective of creating a best in class biometric card solution with a user centric focus has given SmartMetric an unbelievable new credit card category product.

“Bringing a brand-new type of credit card into existence and that meets the approval and licensing requirements of the credit card industry is no small feat. However, we are excited with the incredible prospects for the company as we move forward with our amazing next generation credit card with its built-in biometric fingerprint security,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric believes it has created the most advanced biometric credit card solution in the world. “While others may try to imitate none have come even close to achieving the advances we have that allow our card to be used in all types of credit card readers in all card usage situations,” said Chaya Hendrick.

As guidance, SmartMetric is expecting its latest biometric card will be completed manufacturing within the next 4 to 8 weeks. That includes component assembly, card lamination and delivery. Changes to the products componentry has had to be made due to supply chain chip issues. These issues have now been overcome and there is now no impediment to the manufacture of the SmartMetric biometric card product.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SmartMetric Biometric Credit Card Is Protected by Issued Patents Against Co…

[ad_1]

NEW YORK, November 03, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) biometric credit card, invented by SmartMetric’s founder and CEO Chaya Hendrick, is protected against copying by other manufacturers by issued patents.

Patents are powerful in protecting original inventors from people or companies that try to copy the invention of an inventor. The USA founding fathers saw the economic benefit and need of protecting the inventions of inventors that protecting inventors inventions is part of the US constitution.

Chaya Hendrick, the CEO and President of SmartMetric is the original inventor of credit cards with fingerprint biometric technology built inside a credit card. As the original inventor, she has been awarded by the United States Patent Office, various patents protecting her inventions from anyone who would seek to copy her inventions.

SmartMetric has received an exclusive license from Chaya Hendrick to develop biometric fingerprint card products based on her patents.

What the SmartMetric licensed biometric patents mean for SmartMetric is that any company that seeks to produce or issue a biometric fingerprint credit card with amongst other card type products, will be stopped from doing so in the United States.

“The issued patents provide SmartMetric exclusivity particularly in the USA market, from product copy cats,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

A couple of European based companies have set about to copy and infringe the SmartMetric patented biometric product. These companies will be unable to sell their copycat products in the USA market. Any bank or card issuer seeking to issue to its customers, biometric credit cards, will under USA patent law, have to buy such cards from SmartMetric.

The product exclusivity afforded to SmartMetric will be enforced by the company against any business that attempts to introduce a copycat biometric card product in the United States. Using the Federal Trade Commission, copycats will be stopped at the border according to SmartMetric’s President and CEO.

The SmartMetric biometric fingerprint activated credit card is coming to market in the light of alarming figures showing that businesses are suffering monumental losses due to online and at check out, fraud. What is so alarming is that the rate of growth in online fraud for merchants is in triple figures with loses for chargebacks alone being estimated to reach $30 Billion in the United States.

Chargebacks are where the credit card user amongst other things, denies making the card purchase or says they never received the goods. It is estimated that 86% of this $30 billion in “chargebacks” or to be more precise, transaction reversals, are based on fraudulent misrepresentations by the card user.

“Using the SmartMetric biometric credit card that only allows the legal card holder to use the card, protects card users, merchants, card processors and card issuing banks with state-of-the-art biometric technology built inside the credit card,” said today SmartMetric’s President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric biometric credit and debit card developed by SmartMetric, uses the cardholder’s fingerprint which is read by a Nano fingerprint scanner inside the card, to turn on the card prior to insertion into the card reader or ATM. The cardholder’s biometrics are protected since their fingerprint is stored inside their card and never leaves the card at any time. Only the authorized holder of the SmartMetric biometric credit and debit card can use the card.

“Using the SmartMetric biometric credit card that only allows the legal card holder to use the card, protects card users, merchants, card processors and banks with state-of-the-art biometric technology built inside the card,” said Chaya Hendrick.

Further information on the SmartMetric biometric credit card is available on the company website at www.smartmetric.com

ResGreen’s LilBuddy uses Robot Operating System (ROS) to improve integration of components and simulate the AMR in different environments

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, MI, Sept. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ResGreen Group International, Inc. (OTC Pink: RGGI), a next-gen mobile robot and software solutions company, announced today its LilBuddy autonomous mobile robot (AMR) is using Robot Operating System (ROS), an open-source software development kit, to enable seamless integration with hardware components and software systems. The team is also testing LilBuddy’s lidar mapping system, sensors and navigation capabilities in a ROS-powered simulator.

For over ten years, ROS has helped developers across industries develop and build robots, from research and prototyping to deployment and production. It’s currently featured in thousands of mobile robots that are working inside warehouses and plants from a variety of AMR manufacturers. ROS also supports numerous hardware interfaces, making it easy for engineers to integrate LilBuddy’s components, including cameras, lidars and motor controllers.

“In addition to speeding up the development of LilBuddy, ROS has been a huge help in addressing supply chain issues,” said Parsh Patel, CEO at ResGreen. “If a particular component is on backorder or too expensive, our engineers can easily swap it out with a component from a different manufacturer, giving them multiple vendor options. ROS allows us to keep costs down and ensure quick delivery for our customers.”

ResGreen engineers recently virtually tested LilBuddy with ROS by creating a simulation of the AMR mapping its environment using natural feature SLAM guidance. They created a ROS model of LilBuddy, often called a digital twin, and inserted it in an environment that included ramps, other robots, walls, trash cans and shelving. The LilBuddy digital twin and its control software reacted and generated data in the same way it would in real life. This simulation feature can help plan vehicle routes, make design changes, assist with quality assurance and train customers.

ROS 2, the latest version, is supported and tested on Linux, Windows, and macOS, as well as various embedded platforms (via micro-ROS).

The SmartMetric Biometric Credit and Debit Card is Unique and Protected by …

The SmartMetric biometric card is protected by issued patents that in its view would prohibit other biometric card companies from entering, in particular, the United States market.

It is our understanding that SmartMetric is the only Biometric Smart Card designed for credit and debit cards that uses a separate secure encrypted processor for storing a person’s fingerprint inside the credit or debit card. Because SmartMetric does not use the smartcard chip, or what is referred to in the credit card industry as the EMV chip, for storing a person’s fingerprint, the SmartMetric biometric card has a number of distinct advantages over the others.

The SmartMetric biometric card allows for simple and frictionless fingerprint enrollment. Because it is not using the EMV/Smartcard chip to store the fingerprint it does not need a separate reader to capture the person’s fingerprint for storage inside the Biometric card. In the case of credit and debit cards, other companies’ biometric cards need the person to go into a bank branch to have their fingerprint captured and stored into the card using a special fingerprint reader. This is highly inconvenient for the public and of course impracticable in credit card markets such as the United States where the vast majority of new credit cards issued to customers are sent out via the mail.

Since SmartMetric uses a separate processor and fingerprint storage inside the card for users’ fingerprints, credit card and debit card customers do not need to go into, say, a bank branch to have their fingerprint enrolled and stored inside the biometric card. The SmartMetric solution allows for a simple enrollment of the fingerprint on the card much the same and as easy as one would store fingerprint biometrics onto a mobile phone – no special reader needed. Just like the mobile phone with its built-in fingerprint scanner, the SmartMetric biometric card itself is used for capturing and storing a persons fingerprint. A simple process of touching the sensor a few times, a solid green LED light indicates successful fingerprint enrollment and the new card holder’s fingerprint is forever stored inside the SmartMetric biometric card.

“We know of no other biometric card developed for use by banks and large-scale credit card issuers that has created such an easy and intuitive at-home fingerprint enrollment on the card as that developed by SmartMetric,” said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO Chaya Hendrick.

“We are excited about our now moving forward with our card in association with card issuing banks here in the United States. The company, being a USA based company, is concentrating its first product release in the United States in association with a significant credit card issuer that is now in discussions with SmartMetric for release and issuing to the public of its unique advanced biometric credit and debit card,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric has been supported by private investing shareholders during its long product development stage. Over recent times the company received funding from a source via what is commonly referred to as convertible notes. The company has no idea how many shares may or may not have been converted under these prior notes.

Recently in the company’s filings it has been disclosed that the company has had four professional investment funds provide a round of funding while at the same time the company registered, via an S1, additional shares.

An agreement is in place to provide for up to $5 million in draw down funding via S1 registration with the largest of these funds.

The company is very thankful for the funding support it has received from its shareholders over the years and is very thankful for the funds who have now provided cash to allow the company to move rapidly forward with the execution of its biometric card business into the market.

“SmartMetric has no plans to do a stock split. We trust that the company will be valued accurately on the market as it moves forward with the execution of its business,” said Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric is the only USA based Biometric Credit Card company and has current manufacturing capacity to supply United States card issuing Banks with more than a million cards a month.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.

SmartMetric, the Creator of Biometric Credit Cards, Is Pleased to Announce …

[ad_1]

NEW YORK, September 20, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): The introduction of a unique and novel new card into the credit card world is a complex process requiring approvals for the product to be able to operate over a global payments network that interconnects with in store card readers and ATMs for credit and debit cards.

SmartMetric is dealing with one of the largest of the top three global payments networks on moving the SmartMetric through their approval process. This has understandably been a long process as our card with its built inside-the-card biometric fingerprint scanning function is beyond the normal cards that are approved by the network for card manufacturers.

“We are pleased to say that we are now in the final process where our card only now needs to be tested as to the card body itself and now does not require any further assessment on its biometric functionality,” said SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

“As a company, we could not be more pleased with the supportive dealings we have had with this major credit card network and are excited to be moving forward to the last stage for our card to obtain approval for its use on their network,” said Chaya Hendrick.

Now that SmartMetric has been cleared to submit its card in what is expected to be the final step in its network approvals process, the company is now able to complete its card production. Up until now there was a lot of back and forth on what EMV payments chip we could use on our card but thankfully that has now been resolved which gives us the ability to finish off our manufacturing in compliance with the credit card network.

SmartMetric has all of its components now at its electronics assembler and will within a couple of weeks be moving forward with presentation of our card for final testing. This testing is for testing of the card body itself which is separate from its biometric electronic function. The last and quick process that will at the end of the day allow SmartMetric to provide its finally approved card to card issuing banks around the world.

The SmartMetric biometric in-the-card security uses a card holder’s fingerprint biometrics to identify the card user and turn on the card as it is being inserted into a card reader or ATM. A sensor is on the top of the card and is simply touched by the user as they reach across to insert their card in a reader. In less than a second the card holders’ fingerprint is scanned and matched with their pre-stored in the card fingerprint which in turn activates the card for a transaction.

SmartMetric is the only USA based Biometric Credit Card company and has current manufacturing capacity to supply United States card issuing Banks with more than a million cards a month.

SmartMetric’s Biometric card addresses the multibillion existing chip-based credit and debit card market. Figures published by EMVCo reveal that by year end of 2020, 10.8 billion EMV® chip cards have been issued by financial institutions and were in global circulation – a massive increase of nearly 1 billion credit and debit EMV® cards compared to the previous twelve months.
