With the advancement in Artificial Intelligence and biometric technologies, facial recognition has made out of movies like Mission Impossible to the real-world, where staff and visitors use it every day to access entry to offices and other organisations. Facial recognition systems compare live captured images or videos of individuals with an image on record for that person. Most facial recognition systems use the nodal points (detection points) on the face to measure various features such as width/length of the nose, the shape of the face, and depth of eye socket etc, which is saved as a person’s faceprint.

Social and health benefits no-touch recognition:

Facial recognition systems have been immensely helpful in providing secure access control and safe environments. It simplifies access control for users by eliminating the requirement for a smart card or fob based credentials, which needs to be carried by users. Because the face cannot be duplicated it cannot be lost or faked, with advanced AI algorithms the facial recognition terminals can differentiate live faces and masks. The facial recognition systems can also be used for time and attendance functionality by setting other parameters like doors open control, allowed access time periods for certain people etc.

Social and health benefits of facial recognition:

Facial recognition access control systems offer an access control solution that is non-contact, and therefore more hygienic and easy to use. Unlike contact based biometrics and security solutions, the facial recognition system is immune to contagious germs. With recent developments, facial recognition has already proven a promising solution to replace contact-based systems. Especially at airport boarding gates, security screening points and at check-in gates.

Facial recognition has been very promising for applications in law and order and social safety in finding missing persons and spotting listed criminals in a crowd. And allows identifying persons of interest to automatically alert security officials withing seconds. A great example of facial recognition at work was seen, in April 2019, the Sichuan Provincial Public Security Department in China, found a 13-year-old girl using face recognition technology. The girl had gone missing in 2009. Studies also suggest that nearly 60% Americans polled in 2019 accepting the use of face recognition by law enforcement to enhance public safety.

Iris Recognition: An economic option for access control and Time & Attendance:

Many businesses across the globe are beginning to adopt no-touch biometrics for access control and Iris recognition has been proving to be one of the most reliable biometric solutions during the COVID 19 pandemic. They have been considered very practical as wearing mast or scarf or even spectacles does not affect the capturing and authentication process.

Iris recognition can accurately identify people with just their eyes it works with everyday masks, medical mask, goggles, and head coverings, used in healthcare to manufacturing sectors. It’s fast accurate and easy to use. The human iris is data-rich and more than 250 data points it’s stable and does not change with age.

Manual labour damages fingerprints, but not the iris and it works with gloves. Hence is one of the best solutions for keeping your employees and visitors safe.
