Case Study

ALLIED VISION – Infrared camera enables reliable facial recognition

A research team at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences has developed a skin detection process which supports biometric systems in securely identifying faces. For measurements in the infrared range, the scientists rely on the Goldeye G-032 SWIR camera. Case Study
For security in public places, buildings such as airports, or security-related areas like data centers, biometric systems are being used more and more. The greater the proliferation of such systems, the greater the probability of possibilities designed to circumvent or outwit them.  This, in turn, requires the development of even more reliable security systems.
