This chapter presents concepts that are not commonly synthesized and discussed in open forums. With tongue in cheek, perhaps the reason is that nobody is interested in what will be said. But it is far more likely the reason is that much of the information relates to companies that make at least a portion of their living by leveraging biometrics into solutions. Company-business practices and intellectual property are the keys to unlock these revenue streams and to protect competitive advantage. Yet, these items are rarely discussed. Much of what is presented is derived from the author's experiences and conclusions after having been involved in the biometric community for many years. Every effort has been made to give the reader an appreciation of the challenges in developing mass-market biometric sensors from a holistic perspective.
