Infinity Optics launches dual-biometric solution for automotive industry
Infinity Optics has launched a blended iris and face recognition system for driver identification and monitoring which leverages the company’s proprietary Extended Depth-of-Field imaging technology.
The dual biometric recognition system and gaze capability is delivered with a single sensor camera, and the Depth-of-Field iris authentication technology works for a seated driver without requiring the driver to move back and forth to find the focus range. The system can be used with most third-party software for monitoring driver fatigue and anti-sleep detection systems, according to the announcement.
“Our advanced Biometric Depth-of-Field imaging technology powers innovation across various industries from combined biometric iris-face authentication plus gaze tracking in consumer smart devices, automotive, VR and gaming et cetera.” said Alfred Chan, Infinity Optics CEO. “The automotive space for biometrics and driver management systems is closely intertwined and will lead the future of mobility that will allow drivers and passengers to truly relax and enjoy the ride.”
Discussing the potential of Infinity Optics dual-biometric technology for the enterprise market earlier this year, Chan told Biometric Update that its user experience is basically friction-free, and that the technology is very affordable for OEMs.
A 2017 report from Technavio forecasts the global biometric market for the automotive sector will grow by 19 percent CAGR through 2021.
