The study shows for the first time that performance in a crucial “passport task” (face recognition) is affected by poor sleep, added Louise Beattie from the University of Glasgow in Britain. For the study, the team asked participants to decide whether two images, presented on a fingerprint authentication computer monitor at time attendance systems the same time, pictured the same person or two different people.The researchers set the task to differ from the face recognition tasks most of us encounter in our daily lives in two important ways: firstly, the people pictured in the images are unfamiliar.
Secondly, the task did not involve memory, because the images appear on the screen at the same time. While most Biometric Access Control people would typically expect to perform well on these tasks, many are surprised at how many errors they make, the authors noted.”The study found that poor sleep in the three days leading up to the test was associated with poorer performance on the face matching test,” Beattie stated.
Further, poor sleep and shift work was also associated with a range of adverse health, cognitive and emotional effects.
Our face recognition device such as time clock and access control can improve the accuracy of poor image. Even if you have poor sleep, the accuracy of our facial devices also can be more than 95%. If you would like to know more details, just contact us.
