Face detection applications
FaceDetection is an innovative technology which can be
integrated into any webpage as a Silverlight plug in. It takes snapshots using
a web camera, searches for one or multiple faces in an image using a
sophisticated two-dimensional DSP algorithm.
Our brand new intellectual algorithm goes beyond the limits of all existing technologies as
it obtains the unique functional features that enable the application to:
- work stably with any skin color
- accept low-quality images (e.g. pixilated, blurred, noised, darkened, etc.)
- detect faces with glasses
- determine the position of the particular facial features (e.g. eye pupils, nose, lips, etc.)
- detect several faces on one image
Face Detection technology may be used as a core component (basis) for a great number of applications with a wide sphere of usage.
1. Smart captcha. It
is a variety of an already existing captcha which uses graphic images and
sounds. However, using a face and/or motion detection technology you are not
going to bother users with recognizing bizarre letters and unclear sounds any
more. All the user needs is to show his face in motion so that the website
owner is sure that he is a human being, not a machine. No more losing partners
and visitors, no worry of being spammed by robots.
2. Webcam based energy/power saver. This is an absolutely innovative idea which may be helpful to
everyone who uses a PC, TV or some other types of household appliances. The
main feature here is to switch on a sleep mode or reduce the brightness of a
screen whenever a user’s face is away from his device for more than 5-10
minutes and to set it back to work automatically when a user’s face is
detected. There is no need to say that nowadays the problem of power saving is
one of the most urgent. Using face detection module you will be closer to its
solving than ever.
3. Time tracking service. If you are interested in tracking the billed hours of your
employees this is exactly what you need. No way to cheat you, no more money
spent in vain. You will only pay for hours spent by your employee on his
working place. In case a web camera no longer detects a face and/or motion in
front of it the time tracking is stopped. In the moment a person comes back it
starts again. As easy as ABC.
4. Outdoor surveillance camera service. Face and motion detection technology may help making a good
service to keep you secure. Firstly, it will give you a signal of somebody’s
coming even before he rings the doorbell. Secondly, with its help you will be
able not to watch the whole video recording when it is necessary, but to choose
the periods when motion or face was detected, so that it saves your time
5. Video chat service. If you are an owner of a video chat our application should meet
some of your needs. All of your customers obviously have a webcam.
Unfortunately, there are the people who tend to spoil your reputation making
the rest of the users see indecent pictures of a sexual nature. Using the face
detection technology you can be sure that all of the visitors of your website
behave properly and feel comfortable even if their children use this service.
Moreover, it could be a sound idea to use the face detection module to define
the status of the visitor. If he is not present in front of the screen he
obtains an “Away” status, when he comes back and his face is detected, “Online”
status appears and the rest of the users are able to see him again.
