Cognitec responds to high demand for fast, accurate face recognition solutions at border control points by introducing a new product that combines smart hardware for image acquisition with market-leading software for verification processes.

FaceVACS-Entry is ready for integration into electronic gates (eGates) which provide travelers with electronic passports (ePassports) the option to pass through automatic passport checks. After a person enters the gate, the system detects the person’s face, adjusts the position of the cameras according to the person’s height and then captures frontal images. The software instantly verifies the live images against biometric photos stored in passports, other ID documents and/or facial image databases.

Cognitec has optimized the system to ensure efficiency and ease of use for travelers while capturing best-quality images that guarantee high verification accuracy, thus fully complying with guidelines set by the European Border Police (Frontex). A proprietary sensor, able to distinguish between human faces and artifacts like printed images and masks, detects presentation attacks.

“Cognitec has developed pioneering face recognition technology for border control solutions since the inception of our company. We are proud to bring another innovation to airports and other ports of entry that will improve the overall traveler experience and safety,” says Alfredo Herrera, Managing Director of Cognitec.

In August 2013, the company announced its participation in the EasyPASS project that will supply eGates to passport control areas at all major German airports, following a contract award by the German Border Police. All EasyPASS gates will be equipped with FaceVACS-Entry.
