According to news, the Saudi Ministry of Interior is planning to launch an Iris recognition biometric system across Saudi Arabia. This includes plans to cover major places, such as airports, sea and land. The purpose of installing the new systems is to make use of advanced technology for the identification of passengers. In other words, this state-of-the-art system is designed to make sure no intruders can enter a secure area.
The National Information Centre of the ministry will be responsible for installing the Iris recognition system. Basically, this system involves the application of mathematical recognition techniques that scan the iris of a person before allowing access to the facility.
The National Information Centre will sign a contract with the government in order to import the system and get it installed across Saudi Arabia. Once installed, this system will achieve high efficiency according to International standards. Currently, an invitation has been sent to invite bidders. Apart from this, the terms and conditions are being outlined. Apart from this, the government is also considering the terms and conditions for the installation of these security devices.
How does the Face Recognition System Work?
Basically, the Iris recognition system is an improved form of the most popular biometric identification that involves scaring fingerprints. Medical science tells us that every person has unique and distinctive eye features. And the good thing is that no two individuals have the same features of iris. As a matter of fact, both of your eyes have different features. Therefore, both of your eyes are unique.
The identification of the iris is done via a video camera prior to decoding and storing. As soon as the information is stored in the computer system, it is easy to identify it in milliseconds as soon as a person looks into the camera.
Iris identification offers a lot of advantages over other biometric identification systems. First of all, this type of security system for identifying an individual is unique. No matter how old you get, the features of your iris will never change. On the other hand, if you do hard physical work, your fingerprints may change over time, and you may find it difficult to have your fingerprints scanned.
Actually, these security systems are based on artificial intelligence. A face recognition system can help replace regular fingerprint identification. Therefore, this system is easier to use and quite hygienic.
Apart from this, it is much faster and dependable compared to other biometric systems. These devices will scan your face and verify it in a few seconds. Therefore, there will be no need for employees to use their cards, keys, or badges. Once these facial recognition systems are installed, there will be no misuse of these systems. If you are an employer, these systems will be of greatly useful for you.
Features of a Face Recognition System
Now let’s take a look at some prominent features of a face recognition system.
- Prevents time theft
- High efficiency
- Handling of temporary employees or workers
- Face crop feature for forensic investigation
- Multiple face recognition
- Higher reliability
- And many others
In short, this was a brief introduction to face recognition systems for businesses whether they are small or large.
