“Face detection is a computer technology that determines the locations and sizes of human faces in arbitrary (digital) images. It detects facial features and ignores anything else, such as buildings, trees and bodies.”
Face detection is a much researched, current issue with lots of opportunities for high-tech applications. One of the most obvious applications of face detection is user identification. In cases where there is no need for high level security (such as bank terminals), face detecting systems can be applied. Its advantage is that it isn't intrusive, i. e. the user doesn't need to make extra motions, training or using tools (e. g. a mouse or a fingerprint scanner).
Possible fields where face detction can be applied:
- Crime investigation - seeking wanted persons on security surveillance cameras.
- Computer identification - Admission systems based on face detection
- Advertising - Personal greetings, recommendations
- Security technical solutions - An alternative to RFID based admission systems
Our company deals with the development of face detecion systems and their transplantation into the industry.
