IDEMIA teams with Infineone and Pmdtechnologies to get ahead on 3D facial recognition.
The partnership seeks to develop a refined solution for systems integrators and OEMs.
The trio is specifically working on a 3D image sensor on Time-of-Flight technology. The latter analyzes how emitted light reflects off of objects in the real world. The technology will be used to enhance 3D facial recognition in LG’s newest smartphone, to be shown at MMW – Mobile World Congress, this year:
Last September IDEMIA presented its new software designed for infrared cameras, the logic here is to unify the latest hardware from Infineon and Pmdtechnologie with the cutting edge 3D Face biometric software from IDEMIA. The result of this would be a powerful solution aimed at smartphone, tablet, and PC applications as well in different areas such as smart cars.
