3D Facial recognition is the new trendy feature of smartphones. According to a report from Counterpoint research, although 66% of device makers currently opt for fingerprint sensors, they are increasingly turning to biometric facial recognition technologies. In 2020, all new smartphones will feature biometric sensors. Therefore, facial recognition is set to become standard, creating a more secure and ergonomic user experience.
Idemia has unveiled IDEMIA 3D Face, its facial recognition technology. The feature requires the use of a 3D software that enables to easily unlock smartphones quickly and easily.
Idemia has been accustomed to working with algorithms, primarily based on Artificial Intelligence and tested on all user groups. In this context, IDEMIA 3D Face presents a technology that can accurately calculate face geometry in three dimensions using the invisible light of an infrared camera, providing very good levels of security. The solution also delivers an optimal user experience, combining convenience, reliable recognition and comprehensive security.
IDEMIA 3D facial recognition is now compatible with all smartphones featuring capture ability. The solution is creating the potential for future uses: tomorrow, it could be incorporated into vehicle technology, for example, and recognize each car’s owner — or even identify abnormal behavior such as the driver falling asleep at the wheel.
“We’re proud to have the new IDEMIA 3D Face within our range of high-tech solutions. IDEMIA 3D Face represents what IDEMIA does best, i.e. combining product security and convenience with advanced 3D facial recognition technology. Although smartphones are commonplace, it’s essential to adapt the features to our lifestyles. So IDEMIA is providing a solution that’s ahead of its time and highly secure for regular, effective and simplified use,” says Yves Portalier, EVP and GM of the Connected Objects Business Unit.
