Mobile MyKad Reader & OCR

Innov8tif is one of the pioneers to develop and support the Malaysian MyKad reading and thumbprint/facial verification function for a mobile platform, using a command set that is consented by the National Registration Department of Malaysia (JPN).
MyKad Reading (Chip)
MyKad details are read from  the MyKad chip through the support of a reader hardware. Also supports MyPolis and MyTentera.
MyKad details are interpreted from the recognizable text printed on the front-side of the MyKad, captured through a mobile device camera. Also supports MyPR, MyPolis, MyTentera, and foreign worker’s iKad (issued by Immigration Department of Malaysia).

Authenticity Check
Information is read from the MyKad chip, ensuring high level of information authenticity.
Information is “scanned” through image processing, from recognizable text contents printed on the document. Thus, even if a photocopy of a MyKad is presented, the OCR will also succeed in reading the card. This method is NOT meant to ensure document authenticity.
