Aurora debuts long range facial recognition sensor at IFSEC 2017
IFSEC 2017 launch Facial recognition technology developer Aurora has unveiled at IFSEC 2017 a long range sensor that extends near infrared capabilities to a wider range of distances, making it suitable for more applications. Queue management, surveillance and VIP identification are possible applications with the technological advance. Aurora s specialist biometric imaging and illumination technology is designed to work with the latest versions of the company s deep learning-based facial recognition engines.
With its near IR -based facial recognition, Aurora has logged millions of successful events in applications, including time and attendance, airport passenger management and access control. Now, the company s core technology, FaceSentinel LR, uses high speed global shutter technology and a high brightness near-IR ceramic flash to deliver HDR still frames to Aurora s facial recognition engine. Aurora s head of sales and marketing Gary James says FaceSentinel LR addresses issues common in the operation of facial recognition with visible light CCTV images. This can hinder accuracy in situations where the subject s face is not directly looking at the camera. James says: The sensor is highly compact, with very low power consumption, despite its powerful output and processing ability. This extends the operational range of our IR face recognition capability fivefold, opening up many new applications such as queue monitoring and covert identification. At IFSEC Aurora is also showcasing its FaceSentinel sensor integrated with the Fastlane Glassgate 300 turnstile, operating in both token-free Identification mode that allows registered users access simply by looking at the sensor and Verification mode, which adds a biometric layer to the functionality of any access control system. FaceSentinel uses artificial and infrared light to achieve unparalleled facial recognition speed, accuracy and reliability. Aurora s facial recognition technology is used throughout Heathrow Airport for boarding pass verification as well as within British Airways domestic self-boarding gates.
