Title (EN) OPTICALLY BASED BANKNOTE AUTHENTICATION SYSTEM HAVING BROKE DISCRIMINATION
(FR) SYSTÈME D’AUTHENTIFICATION DE BILLET DE BANQUE À BASE OPTIQUE AYANT UNE DISCRIMINATION DE CASSE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and a system are disclosed for processing a banknote. The method includes providing a banknote having at least one photonically active security feature, the banknote being moved along a conveyance path; illuminating the at least one security feature with light from a stimulus source; identifying a location of the at least one security feature by detecting an emission from the security feature; directing an excitation source at the identified location; illuminating the at least security feature with light from the excitation source; and detecting a further emission from the photonically active security feature in response to the light from the excitation source. Further the process includes the step of analyzing the shape and size of each object within an image during the search phase to determine if the object has the expected physical attributes of the real feature.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un système de traitement de billet de banque. Le procédé comprend la fourniture d’un billet de banque comportant au moins un élément de sécurité photoniquement actif, le billet de banque étant déplacé le long d’un trajet de transport ; l’éclairage de l’au moins un élément de sécurité avec une lumière provenant d’une source de stimulus ; l’identification d’un emplacement de l’au moins un élément de sécurité par détection d’une émission provenant de l’élément de sécurité ; la direction d’une source d’excitation vers l’emplacement identifié ; l’éclairage de l’au moins un élément de sécurité avec une lumière provenant de la source d’excitation ; et la détection d’une émission supplémentaire provenant de la caractéristique de sécurité photoniquement active en réponse à la lumière provenant de la source d’excitation. Le procédé comprend en outre l’étape d’analyse de la forme et de la taille de chaque objet dans une image pendant la phase de recherche afin de déterminer si l’objet possède les attributs physiques attendus de l’élément réel.
