Contactless biometrics technology is a type of biometric identification or verification that does not require physical contact with a scanner or device. It uses sensors, cameras, or other methods to capture the unique biological features of a person, such as fingerprints, face, iris, voice, or palm veins without requiring them to touch a surface or device.

Contactless biometrics technology can offer advantages such as convenience, speed, hygiene, and accuracy over traditional biometric methods. Application of contactless biometrics technology include unlocking smartphones, gaining access to secure areas, making payments, and more. The technology aims to provide a seamless and secure user experience while minimizing physical interaction with devices.

Supply chain management is a pivotal part of any business. A supply chain contains a series of steps to get products from their original state to the customers. It is a network of producers, suppliers, software developers, and service providers who work together to create and deliver the product to end-users. This network consists of various individuals, entities, information, and resources.
