Delaware test runs futuristic mobile driver’s licenses with the help of IDEMIA

Delaware could be one of the first states to adopt mobile driver’s licenses. The Delaware Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the state’s Division of Motor Vehicles has launched a six-month pilot of the digital license. The pilot includes around 200 state employees and stakeholders.

The state is running it alongside IDEMIA, the company that produces Delaware’s physical licenses and identification cards.

The New York Times talks to IDEMIA about biometric technology in sports venues

In the case of an arena, a sports fan might sign up for a loyalty program with a team and attach their image and a credit card to the account. They could then park without paying an attendant, walk in without having a ticket scanned and pay for merchandise and concessions without ever taking out their wallet.

“The days of having 40,000 to 60,000 people in the stadium and not knowing who they are, I think those days are going to disappear,” said Charles Carroll, a senior vice president at IDEMIA, which manages the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program. IDEMIA has partnered with three sports venues on security, including Barclays Center in Brooklyn, to offer expedited lines to enter.

If you can take a selfie, you can protect your state tax refund.

Tax season is here, and many people want to ensure their refund gets to them on time. Alabama is leading the way with a program that ensures your refund ends up in your wallet and not someone else’s.

The app is called Alabama E-ID. Once you download the app, you take a picture of your driver’s license or state ID card. You then take a selfie within the app, which is then compared to the photo used on your driver’s license picture. Once you take the selfie, your E-ID is activated. From there, you register your E-ID with the state department of revenue.
