CyberLink has found another customer for its FaceMe facial recognition engine. The company has formed a partnership with Municipal Parking Services (MPS), which will be integrating the FaceMe SDK into its touchless Sentry Health Kiosks to enable a slew of security and safety features.
With FaceMe, the Kiosks will be able to verify the identities of people who are wearing masks, and to tell whether or not those masks are being worn properly. The SDK also comes with temperature detection capabilities, and will support basic gesture recognition that allows users to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to health questions with a shake of the head.
The Sentry Health Kiosks can be used for access control, or to ensure compliance with various public health requirements. The system will create an auditable record of people’s various comings and goings, and can be deployed in public and private areas to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and other pathogens.
“As businesses and workplaces reopen, we have seen a bolstered demand in solutions that meet proper health and safety requirements,” said CyberLink CEO Jau Huang.
“CyberLink, like us, are committed to building a safer workplace,” added MPS Co-Founder Joe Caldwell. “With FaceMe, the Sentry Health Kiosk checks all the boxes needed to protect employees, visitors, business partners and the entire community.”
CyberLink introduced mask recognition with a FaceMe update in June. At the time, the company confirmed that it would be adding temperature detection to the platform.
For its part, MPS is not the first company to turn to CyberLink for a public-facing facial recognition solution. ASA Computers has integrated FaceMe into its FR-1 security appliance for commercial establishments, while Advantech has paired the engine with its FaceView industrial app to power real-time facial recognition in IoT applications. The CyberLink solution has consistently performed well in recent rounds of NIST testing.
