Facial recognition technology identifies a subject using the unique characteristics of her face. In consumer technology, facial recognition can be found on smartphones, using a device’s front-facing camera to capture a user’s biometrics and compare them to a stored template. This kind of technology is used to protect everything from lockscreens to banking apps.
In the vertical markets, mobile facial recognition can be found at work in law enforcement handhelds, identifying wanted persons and bringing the booking process into the field. Mobile facial recognition can be used in physical access control systems, and some deployments of the biometric technology are used in identifying victims in disaster relief scenarios.
