This solution by Dubai-based company NNTC is called iFalcon Face Control Mobile and comprises AR glasses displaying the notification interface and a small bag containing a portable database server inside. The whole set is powered by an eight-hour removable battery and does not need a network connection, which enables its wearers to float freely through the crowd and work across massive events. This go-anywhere device works in deserted areas with no Internet or satellite connections, in the sky when mounted on a drone, and even if the signal is jammed it will perform without failure. Currently deployed across many GCC countries, this solution can benefit various security services. The camera glasses capture faces of those passing by, while the server checks the images against the database and notifies the wearer of any match via the AR glasses in the blink of an eye. “The algorithm is extremely good at recognising even disguised people wearing hats, glasses or covering their faces with a hand or veil. The key advantage of the algorithm is that it is never tired and FEATURE: DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES instantly detects wanted persons with more than 97% recognition accuracy, even if a guard gets distracted for a split second. “iFalcon plays the role of an assistant to security officers and makes their lives easier by alerting them about any potential match against wanted lists, without distracting them from their primary duties. Once the system finds a match, it will display the photo of the person identified that is stored in the database as well as the photo taken by iFalcon on-site and the match percentage. “The solution was successfully tested on busy streets, crowded stadiums and popular markets, resulting in further iFalcon deployments across the GCC countries. Aside from AR glasses, the solution can be installed on drones, wearable cameras, mobile phones and cars. Most common use cases of the iFalcon system currently include: • Security controls on busy streets • Mass events • Vehicle licence plate recognition and stolen car search • Security of malls and markets “iFalcon undergoes regular system upgrades to increase and improve its functionalities, capabilities, and ease of deployment and to further improve the performance of security agencies in the GCC.” n THE SOLUTION ALLOWS WEARERS TO DISCRETELY SCAN FACES IN A CROWD AND COMPARE THEM AGAINST A COMPREHENSIVE OFFLINE DATABASE.
