iFalcon Face Control Mobile on AR glasses first time live in the Americas
During September 8-12 visitors of GSX 2019 in Chicago had an opportunity to try out iFalcon Face Control Mobile – the world’s first fully autonomous mobile face recognition system, integrated with Vuzix AR glasses and supported by AI-powered recognition engine by VisionLabs.
At GSX 2019 (Security Conference & Expo), VisionLabs in cooperation with NNTC and Vuzix introduced face recognition product iFalcon Face Control Mobile outside of GCС. This is the first completely autonomous face recognition solution, which can work without connecting to an external datacenter. iFalcon Face Control Mobile brings face recognition capabilities anywhere, even without the network of CCTV cameras covering every inch of the city.
Currently, iFalcon Face Control is used by public safety organizations in the GCC. Smart glasses screen the crowd to match faces against a database of violators, missing people or suspects. Once there is a match, the solution retrieves relevant information from the database and instantly sends an alert via Vuzix smart glasses.
iFalcon runs on an algorithm by VisionLabs which is in the top three in terms of the recognition quality according to global ratings such as the Face Recognition Vendor Test compiled by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST FRVT) and Labelled Faces in the Wild.
Due to a fast recognition speed of 15 faces per video frame in less than a second, the system proves effective in crowded environments, including but not limited to sports facilities, public events, transportation hubs and shopping malls. The battery keeps running for up to 8 hours of continuous operation, and the database size can contain 1 million+ unique faces.
“We constantly develop iFalcon solution and build a product line with additional scenarios of attendance control, car plate recognition and even industrial safety. We hope the new product will find its customers outside of the GCC too, and GSX will be the beginning of new fruitful international cooperations,”- added Dmitry Doshaniy, General Manager at NNTC.
