FotoNation introduces new face and iris recognition solutions for mobile platforms

October 4, 2016 - 

FotoNation has introduced a new suite of face and iris recognition security and authentication solutions for mobile platforms.

FotoNation’s facial recognition solution has a false acceptance rate (FAR) of 1 in 10 thousand and liveness detection. It combines the latest deep learning advances with computational imaging algorithms and uses existing front-view/selfie cameras to quickly identify the subject in various light conditions and poses.

The iris recognition solution uses patented MIRLIN technology to deliver a unique solution for mobile devices that can accurately identify a subject, even while wearing glasses, and functions in a wide range of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. FotoNation iris recognition has a FAR of 1 in 10 million and is already being deployed in commercial buildings, in multiple European airports and at military bases around the world.

According to a company statement, these new solutions will allow FotoNation to deliver accurate, secure, compact, and easy-to-integrate biometric security solutions to mobile device manufacturers and financial institutions for a wide range of applications including device access, device personalization, payments and other mobile banking transactions.

“FotoNation has a long history of delivering powerful computational imaging solutions to the mobile market, with over 2.9 billion products shipped to date,” said Sumat Mehra, senior vice president and general manager of FotoNation. “When FotoNation Iris and Face recognition solutions are deployed together, enhanced, secure authentication can be achieved with an FAR of up to 1 in 1 billion.”

Development kits for FotoNation’s biometrics solutions are available.
