IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity, today announced that it is providing biometric security expertise to electronic device manufacturers through IDEMIA 3D Face, a technology that uses 3D facial recognition to quickly and easily unlock smart mobile phone software.
According to the latest research data from Counterpoint Research, 66% of device manufacturers are still choosing fingerprint sensors, but they will increasingly turn to face recognition technology in the future. All smartphones are expected to feature biometric sensors by 2020. Therefore, facial recognition will become the trend, which in turn provides a safer and more ergonomic user experience.
Unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018, IDEMIA’s 3D Face facial recognition solution pioneered 3D capture technology, reflecting smartphone users’ needs for simplicity, efficiency and security.
IDEMIA is currently the global leader in biometric solutions for all industries. The team uses state-of-the-art algorithms, based on artificial intelligence, and tested on all user groups. In this context, IDEMIA 3D Face uses cutting-edge technology to precisely calculate 3D face geometry using the invisible light of an infrared camera, providing unparalleled security. The solution also enables an optimal user experience, combining convenient and reliable identification technology with comprehensive security.
IDEMIA 3D Face Recognition is compatible with all capture-capable smartphones on the market. The solution has unlimited potential for future applications: In the future, it could be integrated into vehicle technology, identifying each vehicle owner and even his abnormal behavior, such as the driver dozing off while driving.
“We are proud to use the latest IDEMIA 3D Face technology in our high-tech solutions. IDEMIA 3D Face represents what IDEMIA does best, combining the safety and convenience of products with advanced 3D face recognition technology Combined. Although smartphones are now commonplace, some functions have to be adapted to our way of life. Therefore, IDEMIA offers a forward-looking solution that is extremely safe for regular yet efficient and simplified operations.” said Yves Portalier, executive vice president and general manager of the Connected Objects business unit.
