The e-Door project originates from the collaboration of six companies located in the Marche region: It-Works Srl, Leaff Engineering Srl, Proietti Planet Srl, Western Co. Snc, Curvet Engineering Srl and Restart Scarl. Tecnomarche and Università Politecnica delle Marche, A3Lab group acted as consultants to research and develop on specific aspects of the project.
The internal unit was installed inside the building, in a PC platform. The developed software was integrated in existing operating systems with media center capabilities. e-Door use cases are as follows:
- smart entry phone: an audio/video communication between the internal and the external unit is established when a person "rings" at the external unit;
- smart access: a person wants to access to the building using his/her voice.
- enrollment: the person was asked to say four sequences of six digits. At the end of the process, a voiceprint is created and stored in a smart card.
- verification: the person who wants to access to the building/yacht inserts his/her smart card in the reader (so claiming his/her identity), and then is asked to say a sequence of digits visualized in the LCD display. If the identity is confirmed, the access is granted, otherwise is denied.
