Allevate offering Tygart’s mobile face recognition system

August 7, 2015 - 

Allevate Limited announced it is now offering Tygart Technology’s MXMOBILE facial recognition identification system for mobile devices to enable European government and law enforcement agencies to identify faces remotely.

The move comes a day after Tygart Technology launched the MXMOBILE FaceID System, a mobile face recognition application designed for government agencies.

Using MXMOBILE, government agencies will be able to access Tygart’s MXSERVER cloud-based face recognition system, which process large amounts of video and photo collections on agency-managed smartphones.

MXMOBILE enables users to benefit from the same face recognition analytics capabilities of MXSERVER on their smartphones, anywhere in the world, to capture and upload a photograph and identify the subject within seconds.

“MXMOBILE represents a huge technological leap forward for agents in the field, providing them with the capability to identify individuals using facial recognition in virtually real-time,” said John F Waugaman, president of Tygart Technology.

Using MXMOBILE, government agents are able to send images which are processed through MXSERVER via automated face detection and recognition technologies to match the faces in the photograph or video against watchlists.

MXSERVER responds almost instantly with a brief, rank ordered list of options that best match the face depicted in the submitted image, as well as any other relevant data including biographical data, known aliases and previous comments about the individual.

In addition to being used in the field to identify persons of interest (POI), MXMOBILE serves as a citizen policing tool, enabling citizens to upload videos and photographs of suspicious behavior.

“Allevate has been working to make the power of MXSERVER, already utilised by defense and law enforcement agencies in the USA, available to European agencies,” said Carl Gohringer, founder of Allevate Limited. “We are pleased to be able to offer MXMOBILE to put this capability directly into the hands of law enforcement officers on the move.”
