NNTC upgrades biometric software for AR smart glasses for scale and 5G
UAE-based developer NNTC has upgraded its biometric facial recognition system for Vuzix AR glasses to allow hundreds of wearable devices or thousands of CCTV cameras to be operated on a single interface.
The iFalcon Face Control Mobile solution is now ready for city-wide deployments of law enforcement personnel and security guards to screen crowds against databases of wanted or missing people at scale with Release 2.0, the company says. The new version also propagates alerts to the operational center and nearby personnel, and direct transmission over 4G or 5G supports recognition and processing without a wearable server. GPS capabilities have also been added to the software.
NNTC credits its cooperation with Intel for the implementation of the 8th Generation Intel Core Processor to power the wearable mobile server of the iFalcon Face Control Mobile Release 2.0. The new system also runs on one battery instead of two, and is 500 grams lighter.
“The world is changing, political, economic and even medical situation brings new challenges to the police and security around the globe. Authorities are turning to emerging technologies to address those issues. Video analytics and facial biometrics are some of the best available response options,” NNTC General Manager Dmitry Doshaniy comments. “Following the production rollout of our unique wearable face recognition solution, we have received invaluable feedback from the field. NNTC team is glad to present the pinnacle of our efforts to bring facial recognition and video analytics where it is needed.”
The original version of iFalcon Face Control Mobile launched roughly a year ago through a partnership between NNTC and Vuzix. Vuzix glasses are also available with integrated facial recognition from TensorMark.
