Vuzix integrates TensorMark’s AI, computer vision tech for facial recognition in AR smart glasses

 

Vuzix has entered a strategic partnership with TensorMark to integrate its cloud-based AI and computer vision technology, including biometrics, with the AR-enabled Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, the company announced.

The technology developed by TensorMark can be implemented in various verticals including loyalty and retail, corporate and personal security and access control, and banking services and Fintech. The company has been actively working on building an interface tailored to the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses so that it makes use of device characteristics, such as the color display and on-board camera, to embed facial and object recognition.

The technology will allow customers to identify countless facial and object images located in a cloud database, according to the announcement. TensorMark can analyze security camera output, including drone aerial footage, and send notifications in real time. Future plans include adding a feature for behavior pattern predictions through emotion detection.

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Vuzix to bring our AI and computer vision technology suite to the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses,” said in a statement J.P. Weston, CEO and co-founder of TensorMark. “The combination of the Vuzix Blade with our facial and object recognition backend will open up very significant business opportunities for both companies across numerous market verticals that include border patrol, first responders, hospitality, retail, and banking.”

“The TensorMark solution, working in unison with the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses and leveraging the ongoing developments in 5G and edge computing, will be a recipe that will disrupt the personal and professional security marketplace,” said Paul Travers, CEO and president, Vuzix. “We are excited to partner with TensorMark to address the growing interest in the Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses across the security market.

Vuzix and TensorMark have been working on different POCs with a number of companies including a Fortune 50 that is looking into deploying the solution to deliver enhanced intelligence to security personnel.

Vuzix introduced Vuzix M4000 Smart Glasses and Vuzix Smart Swim at CES 2020, where company’s technology was featured in a number of offerings from other vendors that showcased products at the event.

Vuzix Smart Blade glasses were launched for enterprise and consumer markets at CES 2019, and were integrated with the iFalcon Face Control Mobile, an artificial intelligence-powered solution that connects wirelessly to a wearable portable computer for database storage and local matching.
