The two companies aim to design an off-the-shelf 3D face recognition system fit for integration into smart home, smart retail, smart building and smart security applications, completely independent of the user’s mobile phone. The two companies plan to bring their joint solution to market before the end of 2019.
The integrated solution under development combines ams’ proven Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) emitter modules with MEGVII’s software for depth mapping and face recognition. The 3D Active Stereo solution is anticipated to offer a very robust performance in both indoor and outdoor light conditions for applications such as point-of-sale terminals where consumers will be able to authenticate seamlessly before making a payment.
