THE FEATUREPRINT


A FeaturePrint is a machine perception signature of a set of points that represent the unique surface characteristics of a solid object. FeaturePrints are intrinsic to each object and unique from all other objects. FeaturePrints are “fingerprints” for any solid object.

NOTHING IS ADDED

For the first time, the identity of an object can be entirely self-generated. Our approach ends the counterfeit technology “arms race” by rendering the addition of security markings of escalating complexity—such as seals, watermarks, security tags, special inks, microdots and RFID chips—completely unnecessary.

IMPOSSIBLE TO COUNTERFEIT

Thousands of points of relevant data are extracted from an image of each an object during the FeaturePrint creation process. The extreme detail and complexity of the object and its resulting FeaturePrint make counterfeiting a FeaturePrinted object essentially impossible.

THE FEATUREPRINT PROCESS


INDUCTION


At the point of provenance using the most appropriate strategy and devices. This is where the reference image and metadata are obtained.


CLOUD SERVICE PLATFORM


A FeaturePrint is created from the confirmed image. The FeaturePrint and relevant data are stored in our secure cloud, where recognition is performed.


AUTHENTICATION


A smartphone or other appropriate technology is used to image the object for on-demand authentication against the original FeaturePrint.
