Biometric Identification

Biometrics comprises methods for recognizing humans based upon one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits. Biometric characteristics can be physiological (fingerprint, face recognition, hand geometry, iris recognition, DNA, and others) and behavioral (gait, voice, typing rhythm, and others).
Maybe the simplest application of biometric identification is finding a face on a photography (when the task is just to determine if a face is presented on a picture, and how many faces are on a picture). This task is as simple (comparing to other biometric identification methods) as widely used, most commonly in image management software and ID (identity) systems.
It requires small computing resources to determine a face on an image and thus can be used not only for static pictures but for a real-time video stream.
Extending this task a program can not only determine a face but compare it to ones stored in the database. Face identification can be applied in different tasks, such as authentication, registration, security in common.



Any of this system need quality source image of the face to obtain more accurate results.
To get most quality results photo must comply with such requirements as:

  • Include a full face, front view and open eyes
  • Photo presents full head from top of hair to shoulders
  • Photo taken in a plain white or off-white background
  • Avoid shadows on the face or background
  • Face in photo should have a natural expression (closed mouth)
  • Photos should not include sunglasses or hats
  • The contrast and lighting in the photo should be normal

Most of the requirements must be submits in the time of photo is taken. Remote control and capturing directly to PC system for camera can significantly improve speed and quality of the process of taken identification photos.
For most value system must have such functions:

  • Live image preview from camera to control of position and expression of face
  • Automatic and accurate face detection on preview to control that photo include a full face
  • Full camera settings control for best contrast and colors
  • Direct transfer shoot to your PC
  • TWAIN capability is very useful if you need to transfer result image to other application for printing
