ID R&D is hoping to find new applications (and new customers) for its IDLive Face solution after announcing that the platform will now run on NVIDIA’s Jetson Xavier NX chipset. In doing so, ID R&D has minimized the computational footprint of its passive liveness detection offering, which will in turn minimize the hardware and power costs for businesses and manufacturers that want to run facial recognition on various IoT devices.
Like other passive liveness platforms, IDLive Face prevents spoofing and ensures that a real person is present for a facial recognition scan. The platform boasts iBeta Level 2 certification, and has been integrated into dozens of biometric solutions, including RelyComply’s Know Your Customer platform and the YOUNiQ access control product from Precise Biometrics.
For its part, Precise is now testing IDLive Face with Jetson to further optimize its hardware and processing requirements. ID R&D noted that the Jetson will make it easier to deliver standalone devices with built-in facial recognition capabilities, and highlighted the potential applications of the technology in vending machines, access control, cameras, and connected cars.
“Enabling our facility access control clients to leverage face biometrics with passive liveness increases security while improving convenience,” said Precise US Senior Sales Director Mark Cornett. “The ability to leverage Jetson offers clients a highly cost-efficient way to deploy and scale sophisticated biometrics for access control.”
“We are always looking for ways to improve the usability and performance of our products,” added ID R&D President Alexey Khitrov. “Porting IDLive Face to Jetson is evidence of our commitment to making authentication secure and frictionless regardless of the use case.”
ID R&D is not the first facial recognition provider to offer support for the Jetson Xavier chipset, after CyberLink updated its own FaceMe Security engine to support the platform earlier this month. IDLive Face will be generally available for the NVIDIA Jetson in May of 2021.
