Cognitec continues to introduce new product features to advance its face recognition technology used in eGates for automated passport control procedures. The company’s FaceVACS-Entry product combines smart hardware for facial image acquisition with market-leading software for verification processes, and performs with reliable accuracy and speed in more than 280 eGate installations worldwide.
In addition to automating border control procedures, face recognition is gaining momentum as a reliable alert mechanism for real-time events. Cognitec’s FaceVACS-VideoScan compares faces seen by the camera to one or multiple image databases and instantly finds known individuals. Security agents can track individuals in real time, or receive alerts on mobile devices to act within the immediate vicinity of a suspect.
Based on the anonymous analysis of faces seen by the camera, security staff can also receive an alarm if too many people gather in a specific area, or detect if a person does not pass through a high-security area within a required time frame.
Anonymous facial analysis also allows airports to count individuals and track people movement in time and space. For example, the software measures waiting times and persons in queues, and triggers alerts to direct traffic, open counters or security lanes, or schedule more staff for high-traffic times. People counting, and breaking down count statistics by age, gender and location, provide critical insights into which areas of the airport are more attractive to travelers than others.
