Have you recently been sceptical of using a contact-based access system in your office or a public place? This trait is a major concern in most places for a valid reason. An access surface in a public place is used by many individuals, which makes it a potential source for contracting the deadly Covid 19 virus. Taking this into account, iWave Systems, a leading embedded solutions provider, has successfully demonstrated an alternative solution using facial recognition technology. The solution helps customers with a zero-contact access application by using individuals’ faces to authorize access to a commercial/industrial space, home/office, transportation, banking, and Government sites.
Facial Recognition is the process of recognizing the identity of a person by using their facial features against a previously stored database.
It is a technology that uniquely identifies or verifies a person by comparing and analysing patterns based on the person’s facial details. The face capture process transforms the analogy information into a set of digital information, while the face match process verifies the information with a database of known faces to find a match.

The facial recognition demo is running on iWave’s development board based on the NXP® i.MX8M Mini applications processor. The power-efficient edge computing platform with a SODIMM form factor is coupled with a MIPI Camera module (1080p@30 fps) , MIPI Display (1920 x1080 60fps), and multiple connectivity options. Through the support of key features such as camera, display, connectivity, and the NXP eIQ machine learning software, the i.MX 8M Mini board provides an intelligent platform for the development of facial recognition systems.
