Head of Algorithms for Banknote Processing / R&D
BiographyArmin Stoeckli has an engineering/scientific background. Actually he is head of the algorithm R&D-team for authentication and fitness sorting at CI Tech. Other interests are cost-effective sensors for banknote processing. He has intense collaborations with other industries and government agencies regarding new machine readable features and banknote design.He has been working for CI Tech Sensors AG since 2007. Before he worked for industries in R&D, quality assurance and government in radar procurement. Armin Stöckli holds a diploma degree of Physics and a PhD of natural sciences (ETH Zurich).

These sensors are used in ATMs, Cash Recycling Machines, retail and table top sorters. They are installed worldwide and templets for more than seventy currencies are supported. CI Tech Sensors AG, former BEB Industrie-Elektronik AG (founded 1981), is now hold by Diebold-Nixdorf AG (majority) and Giesecke & Devrient GmbH
PresentationAutomated note inspection: the crucial role of sensors
Banknote circulation is becoming increasingly automated, with sensors playing an important role in the cash cycle. From small tabletop devices to complex industrial note inspection solutions, sensors deliver the data for banknote counting, authentication and fitness sorting. Their performance and reliability are vital for the detection of counterfeits and unfit notes, and they are key to maintaining a consistent fitness level of the banknotes in circulation. The result is a high level of trust in banknotes and the cash cycle. Inadequate sensors could create havoc.This presentation looks at the role of sensors in the cash cycle: What are installed sensors capable of today, and what are their limitations? What impact do sensors have on the selection of machine readable features, note design & specification, to ensure efficient and trustworthy note circulation?
