GovComm Engineers Announce “Face in the Crowd” Technology
GovComm facial recognition software helps spot patterns of a person’s face — the distance between the eyes and the shape of the nostrils, for example — and then compares them against those stored in a referenced database.
GovComm facial recognition can either be used to detect specific people already entered into a database or create new database entries in real time. Video surveillance cameras can be strategically placed in controlled passages to herd a population for scanning and detection. Alternatively, a collection of photographs such as police mug shots can be scanned and entered.
The 3D surface is characterized by set of parameters forming 3D templates. Templates of the same structure are stored in a reference database together with 2D photos. GovComm matches the 3D template against the reference database and scores each compared image. High scores provide higher probability of a match.
GovComm facial recognition software helps spot patterns of a person’s face — the distance between the eyes and the shape of the nostrils, for example — and then compares them against those stored in a referenced database. To quickly spot a face in a crowd, GovComm facial recognition software relies on the fact that almost all human faces have the same prominent features — two eyes, a nose, lips, etc. Each of those features can also be described in relation to others — how far the corners of the mouth are from the eyes, for example. A person’s face or its digital image, therefore, can be described as a set of those unique relationships, or vectors, and stored in a database. Identifying an anonymous face then, is a relatively simple matter of analyzing the unknown face for certain vectors and then comparing it against the vectors of known faces.
GovComm has found worldwide success in driving targeted, innovative products and services in the physical security, emergency notification and life safety industries. GovComm customers include federal and state governmental agencies, defense contractors and high-end commercial enterprises.
