The solution enables brands to regain control over their distribution channels. Authoreon assists in limiting grey and black-market sales, and to track down counterfeit producers and retailers.
Authoreon’s optical scan technology allows users to verify original products against counterfeits. Use cases include the luxury, pharma and automotive parts sectors, to name a few.
On a microscopic level, every material such as leather, textiles, plastic, wood or even metal has a unique surface structure. Even two evidently identical items out of the same batch differentiate in high resolution.
The products are based on a sophisticated image recognition algorithm, which enables comparison to a manufacturer’s stored scan.
In combination with Authoreon’s A-ID, a machine-readable optical label, each micro-scan creates a digital twin of the product on the blockchain.
The Authoreon NanoLense is a portable microscope extension for smartphones to capture micro-scans. It features up to 400x magnification to help verify originality. The device is easily attached to any smartphone camera — no cables, additional light or external power source required.
