Artec Group’s Broadway 3-D facial-recognition system for airport employees has been installed at Russia’s Sochi International Airport (URSS) on the coast of the Black Sea. Its developer says the system uses facial geometry to limit airport access to authorized personnel and can identify a person who is walking, wearing a hat or sunglasses and can even differentiate between identical twins.
Flight Display Systems has been demonstrating a new computer facial-recognition system–See3–that it believes will add a new level of protection to owners and operators concerned with aircraft security, in addition to creating a more complete cabin service.
See3 is based on Linus Fast Access facial-recognition software but adds Flight Display’s own proprietary and expanding set of algorithms. The hardware consists of two main components–the camera and computer–both of which already have FAA parts manufacturer approval.
