Mass Enrolment System Development Project for Mass Transit Facial Recognition Technology

Human Recognition Systems : 03 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Human Recognition Systems is working collaboratively with BAE Systems and OmniPerception to develop biometric face recognition technology that can be used in crowded places and mass transit locations for the quick identification of known criminals without consideration of facial angle
Mass Enrolment System Development Project for Mass Transit Facial Recognition Technology
International defence and security company BAE Systems has drafted in biometric and identity management specialist Human Recognition Systems (HRS) to help 'fast forward' 3D facial recognition technology that will vastly improve security in railway stations and airports.

The project will ultimately help police and security professionals to identify suspects on CCTV as they move quickly through public spaces, read their lip and speech patterns and build up a picture of their behaviour through multiple CCTV cameras.

HRS is currently assisting facial biometric experts OmniPerception by enrolling the faces of over 250 Liverpool-based employees at its company HQ.

The mass face enrolment trial, which consists of sitting on a revolving platform whilst hundreds of images are taken of faces from all angles, will help the 3D face recognition technology to identify known criminals just by the shape of their nose or cheekbone.

During 2010, HRS will be working closely with OmniPerception and BAE Systems to develop further applications for the technology, including mass transit systems and schemes that require large-scale enrolment or verification in airports, railway stations, sea ports and at large sporting events.

David Mullin, Manager of BAE Systems' Investment in Innovation (I3) programme, which is funding this project said: "HRS has been identified as a partner for our I3 initiative, which supports research and technology partnerships focusing on specialist areas such as biometric identification of people on the move.
"Working together with HRS and OmniPerception, we are able to pool capabilities and technologies to develop these solutions more quickly. We are looking forward to delivering these solutions to our own customers to meet their defence and security requirements into the future."

Neil Norman, chief executive of Human Recognition Systems, said: "These are exciting times - our combined efforts will transform the development of biometric recognition, face finding and tracking technology worldwide.

"This project will also help us to deeply understand how the technology can be used for wider non-security based systems that will improve people flow through public spaces and speed up large-scale enrolment situations."

OmniPerception CEO Stewart Hefferman said: "This exciting partnership brings together the complementary skills of BAE Systems and HRS with those of OmniPerception to make rapid advances in face recognition technology possible.

"This collaboration has reduced our time-to-market for some of our specialist products, which themselves have benefited greatly from the experience, knowledge and input of both BAE Systems and HRS.

"This type of collaboration between SMEs and a larger organisation with a global presence is a model which will enhance the competitive position of all parties."

Human Recognition Systems is an award-winning consultancy and systems integrator specialising in biometrics, identity management and video processing technology.

The company has developed multi-biometric, smart surveillance and identity management solutions for companies including Manchester Airport, construction giant Carillion as well as key government bodies including the Department of Health and Ministry of Defence.
