The core capabilities of A4Vision products and solutions are achieved with advanced 3D machine vision technology. Machine vision is perfectly suited for facial recognition and A4Vision has developed a suite of industry leading solutions around this core capability.
The need for a facial recognition system, which is both accurate and non-intrusive, has been sharply increased by wide scale public demand for more effective criminal identification and monitoring systems. Additionally there are new incentives to invest in security infrastructure by government, law enforcement agencies and corporations.
Unlike any other biometric technology - such as fingerprint or iris recognition - facial recognition can function in a real-time environment, requiring only minimal cooperation or awareness from the subject. It is suitable for non-intrusive security checks at high-risk public sites (airports, borders, etc), and for passive identification and monitoring of known criminals and terrorists.
You can learn more detail about machine vision and how it is applied to 3D Face recognition below. Also, there is an overview of the hardware and software solutions developed specifically for the Access Control and Civil Identification markets using these technical capabilities.
