Product Technology

Wireless 3D Binocular Face Recognition Technology
 
• Hand-Held 3DMobileID™ System Integrating Surveillance Operations with On-Demand High Performance Identification
 
• Capabilities at Ranges up to 200 meters*
 
• U.S. Military Technology Ready for Commercialization
 

 
StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI), sponsored and endorsed by U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is becoming the world's leading developer of 3D binocular-based imaging products for the military and law enforcement.
 
SVI's patented technology integrates high performance angular magnification binoculars coupled with real time 3D facial recognition capabilities. SVI's 3DMobileID™ system software allows uploading and identification against 2D facial databases.
 
Powerful 3D imaging algorithms extract faces from a crowd-of-faces, for proper facial detection, statistically improving performance over competing technologies.
 

 
• Compare facial images from different sources to those stored in multi-million image databases
• Instantly view watch lists with most similar identities
• Control thresholds and watch list size
• Manage demographics and other case-related data
• Receive alarm notifications on mobile devices

How it Works:
 
Based on government award winning NIST 2D Face Recognition Vendor Test Algorithms, SVI researchers added key 3D pre-processing steps utilizing the data rich stereoscopic image capture nature of binocular optics. This allowed researchers to segment or automatically isolate a face out of cluttered real-world scenarios and photo-metrically enhance imagery providing uniform illumination across the face improving performance by 20-40‰.
 



  Typical concept of operations allows end user to view through binocular optics and have a “person-of-interest” under surveillance at ranges up to 100 meters from point of use.
 
End user simply presses a “Capture” Button on the device to perform real time identification against 2D database of faces.
 

 
SVI researchers have currently teamed with U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) as well as the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) to increase range to 200 meters.

3D Fixed Camera Facial Recognition Technology:
 
• Hand-Held 3DMobileID™ System Back-End Software Can Be Applied to Fixed Camera Systems to Enhance Performance

Low Quality 2D Imagery Enhanced Imagery and Segmented


 
• StereoVision Imaging, Inc. has applied its core backend software developed for mobile operations to run on 3D fixed camera systems at frame rates up to 15 frames/sec
 
This provides:
• Real-time 3D segmentation, instantaneously removes background clutter
• Auto foreground / background separation matches camera specifications further improving performance over competing 2D technologies
 
This allows:
• Real-time face tracking at nominal walking pace.
• Indoor or outdoor deployment at extended ranges
• Able to operate in uncontrolled environmental conditions

Ease of Installation:
 
Server based backend software architecture allows for multiple video inputs that can be wired (IP cameras) or wireless (handheld) into the facial recognition engine.
 
Server software can be installed on a single or multiple machines.
 
High-level configuration page allows for settings to be easily modified.
 
2D mug shot images can be readily enrolled into the facial database.
 
Multiple video inputs can be funneled either through the wired or wireless connections into the face recognition engine.
