The post-pandemic future opens up new opportunities for facial recognition technology that is widely used across the world for access control and information management. Facial recognition software captures an individual’s facial features and assesses multiple comparison results for proper identification. Biometric identification, liveness detection and other facial recognition tools are highly effective with impressive recognition accuracy.
Here’s how to limit risks post-pandemic with facial recognition systems:
While fingerprint authentication increases the possibility of touching a surface multiple times, facial recognition technology facilitates contactless, high-precision authentication. Amid growing public health concerns, non-contact identification decreases the risk of exposure to infectious diseases and enhances visitor experience in indoor and outdoor public spaces. For example, biometric attendance machines represent contactless functional excellence.
Better and Faster Solutions
Facial recognition systems leverage an “identification-on-the-go” approach that identifies elevated temperatures of potentially infected individuals and reduces congestion and wait times at various places, including airports, amusement parks, museums, and offices. Consequently, organizations can better track individuals with a higher risk of transmitting infection as well as manage traffic and workflow for meaningful outcomes.
Tracking with Limited Connectivity
In areas where network connectivity is limited, facial recognition solutions can empower organizations to track attendance with minimal infrastructure. Storing diverse templates in a massive face recognition database helps in identifying many users. Organizations can benefit from fast user identification even in challenging environments and lighting conditions in places such as construction sites and mining sites.
Facial recognition systems can monitor user movement anytime, anywhere. Organizations can monitor and manage user movement inside or outside office premises without worrying about location details because a user’s image from a specific location is visible for real-time verification. Enhancing the level of automation and employee productivity is easily done with intuitive and highly customizable facial recognition solutions.
Cumbersome identification processes and person-to-person contact impede easy integration and visitor management. However, facial recognition surveillance systems are indispensable for cutting down risk, fighting crime, and reducing pressure on personnel. Currently, organizations can choose from camera-, tablet-, and mobile-based facial recognition systems for a wide variety of uses such as tracking individual movement and managing data.
The COVID-19 pandemic presents several threats to public safety and law enforcement. Facial recognition systems can help in minimizing contact and mitigating the risk of infection while improving operational efficiency. If it were not for digital tools to make our lives easier, the post-pandemic scenario would be unmanageable. As people and organizations continue to adapt to a new normal, digital technology can ensure a safe, sustainable future.
