  • Publication number: 20220147731
    Abstract: To provide an imaging device capable of reducing discomfort caused by visible light. A light source can emit the visible light and invisible light as irradiation light. An imaging unit captures an image of an irradiation region irradiated with the irradiation light to acquire an image. A processor causes the imaging unit to acquire a detection image in a first irradiation mode in which the invisible light is emitted from the light source, and determines whether a biometric object is presented in the irradiation region based on the detection image. When the biometric object is presented, the processor causes the imaging unit to acquire the biometric image obtained by copying the biometric object as the image in a second irradiation mode in which the visible light and the invisible light are emitted from the light source.
