Omron announces upgraded biometric detection solution for ISE 2020


Japanese firm Omron is showcasing its second-generation body detection, face detection and face recognition solution at Integrated Systems Europe 2020 in February, the company announced.

The Omron Human Vision Component HVC-P2 features an integrated camera and an image processing board that is 10 times faster in recognition speed compared to the first-generation system, the company claims. It is built on the Omron OKAO Vision Software, which has already been embedded in more than 500 million digital cameras, mobile phones and surveillance robots in multiple countries.

The software incorporates 10 image sensing functions including body detection, face recognition, hand detection, age estimation, gender estimation and expression estimation. It can recognize facial features up to three meters away, a human body up to 17 meters away and a hand six meters away; the results are examined through a UART or USB interface.

Facial recognition technology by Omron subsidiary Omron Social Solutions Co. is being tested in a biometric gates pilot by Osaka Metro in Japan.
