Facial recognition solution provider Aurora will be demonstrating its AI-powered FaceSentinel system later this month at the UK Security Expo 2016 in London.
The facial recognition system is integrated with Fastlane gates from Integrated Design Limited (IDL) and allows registered users to open doors, turnstiles, and speed lanes simply by looking at a sensor, with no need for any additional verification such as tokens, cards, or PINs.
Aurora Head of Sales and Marketing Gary James says there are important advantages to being able to open a turnstile without the need for additional tokens, swipe cards, or badges. “Contact-type biometrics such as fingerprint scanning can introduce delays because they require the user to pause and comply with scanners,” he says. “But FaceSentinel in Identification Mode—which is also known as one-to-many—accelerates that process dramatically.”
The FaceSentinel biometric access control authentication product is powered by deep learning; the system uses AI and infrared light to achieve unparalleled facial recognition speed, accuracy, and reliability. Aurora’s facial recognition technology is, among other places, used throughout Heathrow Airport for boarding pass verification.
The technology behind FaceSentinel also includes the use of infrared cameras to overcome the inherent challenge presented to facial recognition by fluctuations in natural light.
FaceSentinel will be demonstrated at IDL’s stand at UK Security Expo 2016.
