Biometric sensors for personal identification undergo a huge evolution since a few years. The expansion of this market will need low costs and convenient and easy-to-integrate technologies, both aspects answered by the European collaboration PYCSEL. The objective is to develop a flexible fingerprint sensor on plastic, building on the expertise from the CEA, the coordinator of PYCSEL, on this sensor technology in collaboration with 7 European key-partners.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
