Veracity Information Guidance System (V-IGS)

V-IGS utilizes specialized hardware and proprietary psychophysiological stress analysis algorithms to identify abnormal reactions to yes/no security screening questions.  Data from each touch response is analyzed using proprietary algorithms to access the emotional impact of each screening question.  Veracity tests have been successfully applied to a variety of applications including airport security, drug screening, and identification of deceptive behaviors. In Peer Reviewed studies, accuracy has been demonstrated at >92%.

Veracity's "V-Touch" sensor analytics detect micro changes in a person's touch reactions to various security questions.  Touch data is correlated across a vast reference database providing a fast, inexpensive Preliminary Screening Tool For Security Applications.
