How Face Scanning Technology WorksThe natural progression from fingerprint scanning technology is facial recognition technology. While fingerprint door locks are effective security systems, face scanners are arguably even more so because it directly identifies who is trying to access that lock. But how does facial recognition work? Luckily, you have come to the right place to find out.
Face recognition door locks rely on the ability to identify, recognize, and measure the unique landmarks of a person's face. It then matches what the machine sees with its database of authorized users and decides if it matches the right criteria or not. If it does, voila, the door is unlocked! Some examples of facial landmarks include:
- The brow, or more specifically, the machine measures the distance between the eyes.
- Shape of the person's cheekbones.
- The jaw line.
- The width and length of the nose.
This 2D scanning technology compares two images side by side and then decides if it is the same person or not. 3D facial recognition differs from its 2D counterpart by actually capturing and creating a real-time 3D image of a person's face. It captures a person's face and measures the minute details found therein to identify the subject.
