Biometrics was born as a branch of mathematics that deals with the statistical analysis of biological data measurable and useful to various social and scientific purposes.
Through solutions made of hardware and software you can detect, measure and identify the person for unique identification features. It can also detect unique or repeated features within a group, allowing their classification or detection of common patterns.
Applying biometrics to security you can link permits and privileges in applications and logical access to a single morphological and unique human characteristic, including:
- Hand geometry
Thanks to its trajectory and progress, biometrics is now considered as the ideal method for human identification.
Currently there are several lines of research and development based in biometric recognition.
Systems and Applications
A biometric system comprises a hardware abstraction or data entry and software to interpret the data and able to transform it into a digital sequence which allows its analysis quickly and consistently.
Biometrics is versatile in its application: any situation where you need to identify a person quickly and unequivocally to give him/her access or privileges, biometrics can provide a great value.
Thanks to its unique ability to detect parameters in a large number of human biological elements (face, voice, fingerprint, hand, etc.), applications of biometrics reach a broad spectrum of solutions.
We believe that a more secure and flexible society in the day-to-day. This is possible through reliable technology solutions integrated into everyday items that guarantee safe, fast and powerful processes, thanks to an automatic integration of people with technology and their surrounding environment.
The aim is to humanize and facilitate user coexistence with the constant changes in security without it being eroded.
FaceOn began developing solutions for face recognition and face verification in 2010 through a partnership contract, exclusive license and technology transfer of a multi-algorithm face recognition system with one of the leading universities in Spain, based on the progress of a research group formed by over thirty professors and researchers.
That team dedicated more than eight years to research and development of a set of applications and documents that allowed FaceOn to develop a robust facial identification system from a solid base and coupled to the state of the art.
It's been already several years of research, analysing techniques for improving and optimizing the resources in order to be able to develop practical applications we understood could be useful in today's society.
FaceOn focused on developing facial biometrics systems and solutions because we detected great advantages and opportunities in the use of this technology:
- Non-intrusive method of data acquisition and processing.
- Cheaper and democratization of image capture devices.
- The agility of use.
- User acceptance to integrate into their daily life.
- Robustness against fraudulent attacks.
- Facial biometrics is one of the most established branches of biometrics. Is estimated to have a turnover of close to eight billion dollars in 2018.
We currently offer several solutions based on all these years of development in the field of facial biometrics:
Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018
According to "Global Biometric Systems Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018" the investment that the public and private market conduct until 2018 will reach 20 billion dollars, this investment will be channeled into identification, borders, passports, internet, access to private networks, social networks and financial transactions.
North America and Europe represent 61% of economic growth in the sector. The overall average annual growth is 26% thanks to the declared public acceptance of these systems that will provide greater security to both physical access and virtual access, online and offline".
Talking about each biometric technology, the one with a bigger forecasted growth is facial recognition with a turnover of 7 billion dollars until 2018. Another emerging technology is the recognition of veins, though it is in an early stage of development.
