Voice biometrics company CellMax Systems Ltd. and point-of-sale (POS) system producer PCS Revenue Control Systems, Inc. today announced the joint development of a rapid, voice recognition-based identification, verification and payment system for school cafeterias. The system, which will be piloted in the first quarter of 2007, has an initial potential market of 800 US school districts.
The system provides a solution to logistical challenges faced every day by school facilities managers tracking meal accountability, enhancing student-per-minute processing time and increasing line speed all to ensure that pupils get their meals quickly. It also circumvents several major technological roadblocks previously posed to voice biometrics by the lunchroom set, including background noise, and sudden voice change, which affects false acceptance/rejection rates.
CellMax Systems specializes in identification and verification of the human voice for access control. The company's VioMetrics product suite includes a range of ID management and security applications for the telecommunications industry and financial markets, as well as surveillance solutions for intelligence agencies.
