Safety and security of people as been on evolution since the time man began to dwell on earth. Today security as advanced to an extend whereby artificial intelligence has up-scaled the manner in which security systems functions and how security protocols are handled.
New Technologies on the Emergency
The world has seen the emergency of very fast and intelligent security systems like facial recognition systems, cameras that can detect very fast moving objects like car cameras, biometric systems that can scan even the eye as an identity factor to be allowed in and out of a premise.
Colorvu Technology among others has seen the introduction of powerful CCTV Cameras with advanced features like working even in the dark unlike conventional cameras which usually at night give a loophole for theft to occur because they require a pretty amount of light to function properly.
New Technologies Emerging due to COVID 19 Pandemic Outbreak
Covid 19 pandemic or Corona Virus has seen the change of lifestyle of people like the wearing of face masks, minimal or no interactions, no handshakes, wearing of gloves, washing/sanitizing of hands after a specified period of time among others which are mitigation methods applied to stop the spread of Corana Virus. Security companies like Hikvision, Uniview, ZKTeco are on the verge of working out new improvements in their detection systems to adapt with the introduction of face masks security check controls in and out of premises.
Below is a List of This Latest technologies emerging as a result of COVID 19 containment solutions;
1. Smart Facial Recognition systems
According to a report published by BBC World on their website (Page Url: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56517033) facial recognition was brought to a huge challenge when face masks were introduced as most systems could not detect masks. To beat the challenge tests were done even with Disney world for a month to see if technologies developed more so by Japanese companies could work.
However, in Japan, NEC had been working on a system for people who wear masks because of allergies. So COVID 19 brought a major breakthrough for this prototypes to convert toreal working world effective facial recognition technology which is currently in the market.
BBC News Further mentioned that Facebook too is reportedly considering building facial recognition into its upcoming smart glasses, despite privacy activists’ concerns it could be used by stalkers.
Security systems International Ltd, a company based in Kenya that deals with installation, supply and sales of security systems products continues to supply and install facial recognition systems in Kenya and the world at large.
This Touchless Biometric Experience is a major hype in the security industry.
Security systems International Ltd, supplies the following ZKTeco Touchless Biometrics with Masks:
- ProFace X (TD) Face, Palm-Vein, Mask Detection systems
- Speed Face- V5L (TD) Face, Palm-Vein, Masks Detection systems
