Biometrics is the science of using digital technology to identify every person based on the individual’s unique physical and biological attributes. Simply put, biometrics is the technique of verifying a person’s identity from a physical characteristic (i.e., fingerprint, hand print, face, scent, or iris pattern), or personal trait (voice pattern, handwriting, signature,etc.)
Biometrics uses two distinct characteristics for identification and verification purposes. i) Physical and ii) Personal characteristics.
Facial Recognition Technology is one of the oldest forms of recognition to measure characteristics such as the distance between facial features (from pupil to pupil, for instance) or the dimensions of the features themselves.
Face recognition is a sub set of biometrics and is a non invasive process where a portion of the subject’s face is photographed and the resulting image is reduced to a digital code. Just as with fingerprint and voice scan biometrics, there are various methods by which facial recognition technology recognizes people. All share certain commonalities, such as emphasizing those sections of the face which are less susceptible to alteration, including the upper outlines of the eye sockets, the areas surrounding one’s cheekbones, and the sides of the mouth. Generally speaking face recognition works by first obtaining an image of a person. This process is usually accomplished by a video camera with a high resolution at 3-5 frames per second. The higher the quality of the camera the more accurate the results. Second, the computer software analyzes certain features of that image through different techniques, or a combination of techniques. Finally, verifying that person’s identity is accomplished by matching those features to other images stored in a database.
Facetrack-Access Control Systems is the addition to the line of conventional security and access control products, leading vendors of facial recognition technology products. The product helped pushing the barriers of technology in biometrics.
A foolproof method to increase site security and provide a method of instantly knowing the identity of those entering the facility.
How does Facetrack work?
A user has a personal user profile stored on the system. When a user presents himself for authentication, the new scan is is compared to the stored for a match.If there is a match, access is granted.
Facetrack- Identification System, a scalable, off-the-shelf facial recognition system that detects and identifies photographs or humans as they pass through a camera. Facetrack-Identification System maximizes the value of deterrence, increasing active surveillance functionality, increasing investigative power and drastically diminishing or eliminating the challenges that exist when relying solely on humans to conduct surveillance.
