Facial recognition for reduced workplace contact launched by Invixium, Reflexis and Facewatch
Invixium has upgraded two biometric workforce management hardware with fever detection and the introduction of software for touchless operation.
The company has added a turnkey fever detection capability to its flagship IXM TITAN to deliver notifications to facility or worksite administrators whenever a person with an elevated temperature seeks access. Custom workflows can also be designed. The thermal infrared camera that comes in the new Enhancement Kit for the TITAN is accurate within 0.5 decrees Celsius, according to the company announcement.
A new software upgrade for the IXM TOUCH 2 which Invixium describes as affordable adds facial recognition for touchless operation. The software features a capacity of 5000 images for 1:N matching, and can match against all of them in under a second.
Both products are on pre-order now, and expected to ship mid-June.
“The world and life as we know it has changed dramatically, further driving the migration of biometric access control and workforce management technology to touchless solutions that can help preserve the health and integrity of the global workforce,” states Shiraz Kapadia, CEO and president of Invixium. “Biometrics is the DNA of Invixium and we are proud to drive this next generation of touchless biometric solutions that respond to the real-world needs of the market.”
Reflexis launches 3D facial recognition for time and attendance
Reflexis Systems has launched a workforce management system with 3D biometric facial recognition for touchless time and attendance control with spoof prevention.
The new Reflexis Tablet Clock is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems, and functions with voice commands for clocking in and out of shifts or recording meal times. Clocking in and out with badge ID numbers is also supported, and a geofencing capability is offered. The device supports the company’s Time and Attendance version 4.3 software, which provides the facial recognition capability.
The company suggests the new device for deployments at grocery and convenience stores, pharmacies, hospitals and other retailers.
Facewatch launches periocular facial recognition
Facewatch has upgraded its biometric offerings with a periocular algorithm to detect and identify individuals based on the eye and eyebrow region of the face.
The algorithm works on any camera, and the company says it delivers best-in-class hardware and software efficiency, along with exceptional accuracy.
The company notes that claims by facial recognition providers to work with faces occluded by masks are not validated by NIST FRVT benchmarks.
All existing Facewatch license holders under active maintenance will be provided the periocular algorithm as a standard feature at no additional cost. The company also plans to shortly release a mask detection algorithm.
