A4Vision facial recognition technology utilizes distinctive features of the face to perform authentication. The 3D Images are captured in real time and focus on features where rigid tissue or bone is most apparent and less likely to change over time, which include the eye socket curvature, nose, chin, etc. The following are some of the significant advantages that this technology enables.

  • Introduces depth as a 3rd axis of measurement allowing facial angles and curves to be measured on a sub-millimeter scale.
  • Not affected by lighting conditions and may even be used in darkness.
  • Robust to different view angles and has the potential to recognize a subject at near 30 degrees.
  • Ability to perform verification matching in milliseconds.
The points above are very important for system flexibility leading to ease of use for users of the technology. For any biometric technology there are several aspects that are required of the solution for a successful deployment. These factors include a system that requires minimal cooperation from the subject, allows for flexibility in positioning and ambient conditions, has a high level of accuracy, and is ergonomically designed to keep people moving quickly through secured areas.

A4Vision’s 3D facial recognition technology combines high accuracy with minimal user cooperation. 3D facial templates are precisely defined and unique to a scanned individual. The complex recognition process is performed extremely fast; positive verification of an individual can be done in less then 1 second. The high rate of accuracy and speed characteristics of the A4Vision solution is unprecedented and perfectly suited for tracking though customs and border control checkpoints.
