The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has partnered with British facial recognition firm Customer Clever to develop a 3-D facial electronic timesheets recognition system for high security commercial applications, according to a report in Phys.org.
Innovate UK has allocated joint funding of £170,000 (US$217,657) for the two-year project in an effort to drive innovation and creative thinking in the quickly growing sector.
Overseeing the project will be experts from UWE Bristol’s Centre for Machine Vision, which has been fingerprint database developing 3-D facial network access control recognition systems for more than a decade.
Professor Smith said his team’s high-resolution 3-D technology is significantly better than the 2-D face recognition systems that are currently available, which are typically used for security purposes in airports. He added that the 3-D facial recognition technology is more discreet than iris recognition and fingerprinting systems.
