San Jose-based Tessera Technologies’ FotoNation has unveiled a new high-performance suite of face and iris recognition biometric security and authentication solutions for mobile platforms.
Based on FotoNation’s unique deep learning neural network, and industry proven MIRLIN Iris recognition technologies, these new solutions deliver authentication in the most challenging outdoor light and shade conditions, including liveliness detection, even when the subject is wearing glasses.
With these new solutions, FotoNation delivers accurate, secure, compact, and easy-to-integrate biometric security solutions to mobile device manufacturers and financial institutions for a wide range of applications including device access, device personalization, payments and other mobile banking transactions.
Facial Recognition – By combining its latest deep learning advances with computational imaging algorithms, FotoNation’s face recognition solution uses existing front-view/selfie cameras to rapidly identify the subject in various light conditions and poses. With a False Acceptance Rate (FAR) of 1 in 10 thousand and liveliness detection, FotoNation face recognition solution delivers enhanced security.
Iris Recognition – Using patented MIRLIN technology, FotoNation’s iris recognition platform delivers a unique high performance solution for mobile devices that can accurately identify a subject, even while wearing glasses, and functions in a wide range of lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. With a FAR of 1 in 10 million, FotoNation iris recognition delivers enhanced reliability without sacrificing security and is already being deployed in commercial buildings, in multiple European airports and at military bases around the world.
Development kits for FotoNation’s biometrics solutions are available now.
