Aurora Computer Services is set to launch a new facial recognition system, aimed at rapid identification.
The new system, called Face on the Fly, will be launched at the Biometrics 2013 Exhibition in London October 15-17, 2013. According to the company, the units use a powerful camera with a wide angle lens, which is best suited to be placed in thoroughfares for subject identification.
Enrolment is configurable, says Aurora, and providing the subject is cooperative, can take 2-3 seconds. After enrolment is complete, the Face on the Fly software will identify users whenever they pass the unit.
Aurora has some significant deployments of facial recognition at various airports throughout the UK, and says that it has more facial recognition installations in the UK air industry than any of its competitors.
Aurora will be displaying its Face on the Fly system at Biometrics 2013, at stand W80.
Based on a recently-published research report, the global facial recognition market is estimated to grow from $1.92 billion in 2013 to $6.5 billion in 2018, at an impressive CAGR of 27.7%.
