NEC showcases IoT biometrics solution built on Microsoft Azure


NEC Corporation announced it will demonstrate a new Internet of Things (IoT) solution built on Azure IoT services for the manufacturing industry at Hannover Messe 2015 trade fair, held April 13 -17 in Hannover, Germany.

The NEC FieldAnalyst software combines facial detection capabilities with communications, analytics, and data storage solutions powered by Azure IoT services.

NEC’s FieldAnalyst for Gate detects the faces of individuals entering a location and provides real-time analysis of their range of age and gender.

The solution encompasses NEC’s biometrics verification engines, next-generation image analysis, and devices.

Once the facial analysis process is completed, the privacy-protected range of age and gender biometric data is sent to Azure Stream Analytics via Azure Event Hubs.

The data is then moved to an Azure SQL Database, which is queried by Microsoft Power BI to provide useful and relevant information that can help users better under traffic patterns and behavior.

NEC’s FieldAnalyst built on Azure IoT services extends the companies’ ongoing partnership to a range of solutions that include Azure, Office 365, and Microsoft Dynamics CRM for a number of industries.

“Our exhibit at Hannover Messe demonstrates the power of NEC’s biometrics technologies combined with cloud-based services that can be delivered to customers across geographic boundaries,” said Naohiko Torii, senior manager of NEC’s solution platform business division. “While we are demonstrating this solution at an event focused on manufacturing, the solution will be broadly applicable across a number of industries including retail, hospitality, and many others.”

NEC will also be demonstrating similar solutions on Azure IoT services at Microsoft’s Ignite conference, which will be held in Chicago on May 4-8.
