Mobile ID Software


High Performance Mobile Identification Solution for BlackBerry® and Pocket PC® devices

Running on a commercially-available BlackBerry, Android or iOS compatible smartphone, 3M™ Cogent Mobile ID software delivers the power of an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) in a portable, handheld format. When combined with the 3M™ Cogent BlueCheck™ II portable capture device, Mobile ID allows users to quickly and easily perform in-the-field fingerprint identification.

BlueCheck II captures high-quality, 500 dpi images and uses Bluetooth technology to transmit the images to the Mobile ID device. These images can be used in a search against the onboard database or submitted as a NIST package to remote AFISes over a wireless network. Submissions and responses are sent and received via standard wireless technology, such as GPRS, GPRS/EDGE, etc.

With the flexibility of Bluetooth, 3M Cogent’s Mobile ID software and BlueCheck II device solution can be run on nearly any Bluetooth and network-enabled platform. 3M Cogent’s solution offers users the following benefits:

  • High-quality fingerprint capture
  • On-device matching capability
  • Bluetooth technology enables wireless communication between BlueCheck II and PDA/handheld device
  • The speed and accuracy of an AFIS
