Institute of Informatics problems, Russian Academy of Sciences (IPI RAN) in 2013 held an international testing «Testing of software products that implement technology biometric identification fingerprint».
Testing was open, it could take the participation of all manufacturers of biometric identification technologies fingerprint. In the tests was attended by such famous companies as Safran Morpho (France), 3M Cogent (USA), NEC (Japan). From Russian companies were Sonda Pro, Intech and Biolink.
The Sonda identification program showed the best results for the set of searching speed and error rate. Sonda presented two variants of the algorithm. Both versions showed excellent results, with the new program showed the best characteristics on the basis of indicators comparing speed and probability. In the first version the average searching speed was 1.9 seconds on the database of 2 500 000 ten-prints. In the second version this indicator reduced to 0.7 seconds while maintaining the same error rate values. Such speed indicators are in line with the latest developments of the world's biometric leaders.
