Beginning a decade ago, mobile computing devices started to become powerful enough to be honestly robust key computing devices. With the advent of viable mobile devices coupled with biometric sensors suitable for mobile use, mobile biometric processing became practical. These practical devices, coupled with the early adopter mindset that law enforcement and the military have toward biometrics, caused these devices to start to appear in “real-world” production use. Throughout this past decade, many government agencies have actively deployed increasingly capable mobile biometric devices for use worldwide. As users gained experience with them in the field, those using these devices actively request new capabilities, driving rapid advancement of mobile biometric device design.
