Face biometrics by Speech Technology Center introduced at Russian airport
The company announced the implementation of the biometric system at the Bugulma Airport in Tatarstan, following the country’s trend of facial recognition technology being deployed in airports, which started last year.
The Smart Tracker FRS has been developed to provide biometric identification and verification of individuals, as well as offer preventive protection measures against fraud attempts. The system has already been installed in several facilities in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, and a number of other cities.
The biometrics-powered solution features artificial intelligence capabilities through which it is capable of recording places of increased congestion, and arrange the information into organized reports. The data is then used to optimize traffic flows and improve passenger comfort.
To ensure that the system also complies with the technical requirements of individual facilities, Smart Tracker FRS can differentiate between the data of open and closed segments of corporate security systems.
“One of the global trends in the security market is the awareness and application of products based on neural networks and biometric systems as an effective security tool,” commented Dmitry Dyrmovsky, CEO of Speech Technology Center.
“In the future, smart services can be created on the basis of the Safe City,” Dyrmovsky explained.
“The Smart Tracker FRS, which is now used to ensure transport security, can eventually become the ground for the introduction of […] face recognition-based admission control, for example, to an airport, [which] can help improve the transport industry [to] create a new level of comfort citywide and countrywide.”
The Smart Tracker FRS already operates on the scale of six cities in Russia, which are implementing the Safe City and Smart City concepts using the Speech Technology Center solution.
According to the announcement, the system was the first biometric solution in Russia to receive the key certificate of compliance in accordance with the Russian Government Decree No. 969, which describes the necessary conditions to achieve a certification of video cameras for transport security.
