August 14 (Palo Alto, CA) – – The Broadway 3D Face Recognition System, installed for airport workers access control, provides the highest security level available on the market. The system uses geometry of a human face one of the most precise biometrics that is impossible to fool or fake. Broadway 3D by Artec Group (http://artecid.com) was selected to be installed in the Sochi airport for its safety and fast performance. The system eliminates access of an unregistered person or unauthorized employee. In less than a second the system captures surface information, having analyzed about 40 thousand points on a users face it builds a mathematical model and compares it to the database. It is capable of identifying a person on the walk, in hats or sunglasses. It can also tell apart identical twins. Moreover, the system offers a high throughput that is quite crucial while rush hours. Registration takes up to 2 seconds; throughput is 60 people per minute.
3D facial geometry recognition
The system of 3D facial recognition is integrated into the network under ESM management and works in a verification mode. A biometric template is stored in the database and its numeric number is assigned to each access card.
When a person enters though a checkpoint, he presents his card to a card reader. After that Broadway 3D performs facial recognition and compares it with 3D template on the card. If the information matches, Broadway 3D grants access to the person. The information is stored in ESM software. In addition, the solution is able to change work modes and algorithms of particular checkpoint per dispatchers order.
