Telia and Finnish OP bank recently demonstrated how 5G is suitable for facial recognition and payment with an ice cream truck in Vallila, Finland. Customers buying ice cream will make payments with their face using the face payment solution Pivo and Telia’s 5G technology.
Pivo Face Payment uses facial recognition that enables quick and easy payment. You simply stand in front of a tablet, tap and the payment is finalized without a credit card, cash or mobile phone.
It works by identifying the customer with a biometric facial recognition. The technology compares the customer’s face with the biometric template uploaded through a camera, the customer accepts the payment using pre-saved credit card details and the transaction is completed.
Pivo Face Payment is a bank-independent solution that requires a Visa or MasterCard and a mobile device with iOS 11.0 or a more recent upgrade.
