Increased use of facial recognition driving demand for IR LED devices

Digitimes Research released new research that finds that among all biometric technologies, the growing use of facial recognition is expected to drive demand for infrared (IR) LED devices, which is used to improve accuracy of facial recognition.

The increased application of facial recognition can be attributed to the technology’s contactless nature, quick recognition and ease of use.

Digitimes Research notes that while fingerprint recognition remains the most popular biometrics technology, it requires contact of fingers and therefore is mostly applied to personal mobile devices.

Comparatively, facial recognition is widely used beyond mobile devices for personal identification at public facilities such as airports and other highly secured areas.
