Face recognition while wearing a mask

Issue 9 2020 Access Control & Identity Management

Invixium has added two advancements to its flagship device, IXM TITAN: mask detection and face recognition while wearing a mask. This addition is included in the upcoming release of IXM WEB 2.2.40.0 and TITAN firmware version 2.4.40.0.

As businesses worldwide strategise their reopening plans per national and local guidelines, navigating mask mandates is among pressing health-focused considerations. Rather than rebuild security plans around users wearing masks, current and future owners of IXM TITAN can now enable mask detection and face recognition while wearing a mask, and continue using the solution's touchless face recognition capabilities with minimal disruption.

Mask detection enables IXM TITAN to recognise if a visitor or employee is wearing a mask or not, and to inform users without masks to put one on if masks are an entry requirement. Face recognition while wearing a mask is ideal for businesses where employees are required to wear masks, as IXM TITAN can now authenticate with face recognition without asking the user to remove their mask first.

Mask detection and face recognition while wearing a mask work in conjunction with the IXM TITAN Enhancement Kit to develop Invixium's COVID-19 solution. The Enhancement Kit enables IXM TITAN to perform temperature screening at the inner canthus (tear duct) – the most accurate method of touchless body temperature assessment – at a rate of 12 to 15 users per minute with +/-0,5oC accuracy. With temperature screening and now face recognition while wearing a mask, IXM TITAN is a seamless, touchless solution that enables businesses of all sizes to adhere to new guidelines and reopen as safely as possible.
