Face detection is an advanced technology, used in modern security systems. The technology identifies a person by scanning and recognizing their frontal facial structure. It is typically based on Genetic Algorithm and Eigen-face techniques. The system identifies faces through detecting eyes and areas around eyes at first. Other facial features including eyebrows, the iris, nostril, and mouth corners are scanned afterward.
The technology is used widely in many devices. Modern high-end cameras and phones are equipped with face detection or smile-detection technology to capture images as soon as everyone started to smile. And advanced versions of this technology can be found in the field of biometrics and surveillance.
Application of face detection technology in security system brings new heights to the system. It allows for easy, secure, and uncopied access and exit in your building. It provides reliable and accurate access control system and crowd monitoring.
