Etron and Kneron partner for natural light 3D facial recognition at the edge


Etron Technology has partnered with Kneron and 3D imaging Etron subsidiary eYs3D to develop a 3D sensing solution for ‘Artificial Intelligence-On-Edge’ (AI-On-Edge) terminals using 3D natural light depth-map sensing technology to provide facial recognition and body motion detection.

The ‘3D Depthmap Sensing@AI-On-Edge’ solution can be implemented in mobile phones to allow access to five or six different approved people, enabling its practical use for controlling smart home devices such as televisions and air conditioners, according to the announcement. It also provides anti-spoofing protection for use in access control and security monitoring applications.

Kneron has previously announced that its facial recognition technology can be used to unlock entry level and mid-range smartphones in 0.2 seconds.

The body motion detection capability leverages 3D smart stereo cameras with dual lens and 3D depth of field technology to accurately calculate passenger flow, including two-way flow. The partnering companies also suggest it for active marketing media, such as smart retail and interactive electronic billboard systems.

Ant Financial revealed last year it is using natural light 3D wide-angle sensor-based recognition modules from Etron for Alibaba’s first unmanned store in Hangzhou.
