IC card ([tasupo]), the 3rd system which follows to driver's permit. The minor putting out the mug shot of the adult, certifying, there was a defectiveness which finishes, but improvement of the software was recognized in condition.  As for face certification, the built-in camera size of the making and the pupil of the face, analyzing the wrinkle and the sag etc comprehensively, the mechanism which decides age. If as 20 years old or more it cannot decide, you verify by the fact that driver's permit is inserted. Approximately 5000 unit is installed so far in entire country.
